By Sodiq Lawal

Many people were injured at Iremo area in Ile Ife On Thursday morning as suspected PDP hoodlums believed to be rival gangs clashed.

Our correspondent learnt that the clash was as a result of a long-standing feud between rival gangs in Akodi and Ogbingbin.

A motorcyclist who craved anonymity, told our correspondent that the clash was as a result of a row which broke out during the distribution of weapons allegedly acquired by the PDP to cause mayhem during the upcoming Governorship election .

He added that fighting among the hoodlums had become a weekly affair since some undisclosed officials of PDP have given the leaders of thug groups money and weapons.

“Immediately the police arrived there, the hoodlums took to their heels. The violence has become rampant now, ” he said.

Our correspondent however learnt that many residents had fled the area until peace was restored.
