Two young men have been attacked and seriously injured during a clash between supporters of PDP and APC.
In a statement released by the Director of Publicity, Restoration Campaign Organization, Hon. Jonathan Obuebite:
"The youths were attacked by the APC thugs led by one , a well known thug in the area loyal to the former deputy governor, Werinipre Seibarugu.
Digifa mobilized his thugs under the cover of darkness, supported by three armed soldiers who acted as his bodyguards, as they pounced on the defenseless members of the PDP, shortly after the campaign team of the governor left the community at the weekend.
The injured members are currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital."
