Five people were believed to died during a violent clash involving members of some factional groups of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Lagos Mainland Local Government Area of Lagos State at the Oko-Baba area of the LGA,
The clash, which started around noon on Wednesday, had the hoodlums openly using different weapons, including guns, sticks and machetes.
The fracas was said to have started when supporters of the council Chairman, Omolola Essien, attempted to erect her re-election banner at the Oko-Baba Roundabout. Hoodlums opposed to her challenged them and this led to the free-for-all fight.
The state police spokesperson, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, promised to issue a statement on the clash.
