There was commotion in Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State on Thursday during the local government election campaign of the All Progressives Congress.
Punch reports that two cults groups in the council engaged in a supremacy battle shortly after the governor arrived the campaign venue.
The cult clash led to the death of two persons.
Security operatives had to quickly whisk the state governor, Dapo Abiodun away during the gun duel.
The Chief of Staff to the Governor, Shuaib Salis, is a native of the council.
According to the punch report, one of the cultists shot a member of another group in the head.
This development prompted the people to take to their heels while the suspected killer was reportedly shot dead in a reprisal.
Abiodun, after he was rescued, was later seen at another campaign ground for the Abeokuta North to round off the state-wide campaign ahead of the council poll slated for Saturday.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the command was not aware of the incident.
