He noted that the thugs were dressed in police uniforms led by one Bongo.

Lawal described the killing as callous, saying, “it was a pity that the PDP leadership in the state reason that violence could secure victory for their party in the forthcoming general elections.

In his reaction, the acting PDP chairman in the state, Dr Akindele Adekunle, alleged that APC thugs attacked the residence of Omirin with his aged father almost killed.

He alleged that the residence of the ex-chairman of the party, Sunday Bisi was also attacked.

Adekunle said the attacks by the APC were to intimidate members and supporters of the PDP from active participation in the upcoming elections.
