Some members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Idanre, headquarters of Idanre Local Government Area of Ondo State, have been attacked and injured by suspected political thugs.

The victims, who were supporters of House of Assembly hopeful Princess Tosin Ogunlowo, were said to have been in a convoy while returning from the party’s secretariat in Akure, the state capital, when the hoodlums allegedly ambushed them with guns, cutlasses, and other dangerous weapons.

According to an eyewitness, the thugs attacked the politicians in a convoy of four vehicles in Italorun Village on the Idanre-Akure route, after the aspirant went to submit her nomination form.
