IIorin – The police in Kwara said three persons died on Monday in a

clash among suspected political party rivals in Ilorin.

An eyewitness said some people sustained injuries during the clash

that lasted for some hours in Abayawo, Alore-Ode, Adana-Omoda, Ode-

Alawusa and Okelele areas of Ilorin.

The police in the state said the clash followed the defection of some

members of the All Progressives Congress in Alore area of Ogidi ward in

Ilorin West Local Government Area to Peoples Democratic Party on

June 13.

indoor, affected the social and economic activities.

The police said armed mobile police men had been deployed to the

affected areas to restore peace while investigations were ongoing.
