JUST IN: Three killed, five injured as violence mars Ekiti by-election
The House of Assembly by-election for Ekiti East Constituency one in Ekiti State was on Saturday marred by violence as political thugs unleashed mayhem on voters and security agents.
The seat became vacant following the death of Juwa Adegbuyi in February who represented the constituency.
It was learnt that three persons including a policewoman have been killed by the political thugs allegedly sponsored by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) while about five persons were injured and receiving treatment from a private hospital.
The attacks happened three hours into the poll at Ward 7, Unit 7 of the Senator representing Ekiti South, Biodun Olujimi. The senator only escaped by whiskers as the political thugs went on rampage in her polling units.
