A secondary school graduate, identified as Monsuru, has reportedly been shot by some suspected thugs in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.
DAILY POST gathered that Monsuru was shot when counting of votes started in some polling units in Ibadan, the state capital.
Monsuru, whose full identity has not been revealed, was said to have been shot by notorious gang of ‘one million boys’.
The gang had in the last couple of years been terrorising major areas of Ibadan city.
DAILY POST learnt that trouble started when members of some political parties started removing the banners and posters of other parties in the vicinity and replacing them with those of their candidates.
The incident occurred at polling unit 2 of Ibadan South East local government, where a former Nigerian Ambassador to Jordan, Taofeek Arapaja, was said to have earlier cast his vote.
It was gathered that results were being collated when the gang struck and fired bullets in the direction where Monsuru was.
The source told DAILY POST that, ”The boy, Monsuru, who just finished his secondary education at St Luke’s College in Molete, Ibadan was mauled down by the thugs. Many residents believe the thugs belong to the group called ‘One Million Boys’.
“Votes were being collated when the assailants came into Lako Compound, Kudeti, the same ward where Ambassador Arapaja voted and they started shooting sporadically. It led to the death of Monsuru.”
Arapaja, who is a chieftain of ADC, while speaking, complained that security was not tight enough in the area.
However, all efforts made by DAILY POST to get reaction of the spokesman of the state Police Command, Mr. Olugbenga Fadeyi proved abortive as all calls made to his phone number were not successful as at the time of filing this report.
