Election-related violence, sadly, has been a feature since the beginning, most especially in Nigeria

Supporters of the All Progressives Congress and those of the African Democratic Congress engaged in a violent clash in the Yaba area of Ondo town, Ondo State on Thursday evening, August 20.

Several party faithful were injured while several cars were destroyed in the clash.

The incident came a few hours before the local government election in the state. The cause of the fight is yet to be ascertained. The police say normalcy has been restored to the area and efforts are being made to arrest those behind the violent attacks.

    • “I hope this is not a prelude to the coming governorship election and we are calling on the security agencies to take charge and fish out the perpetrators
      Officials of the ADC could be reached at the time of filing this report, as efforts to do so failed to yield results Meanwhile, Mr Leo-Ikoro said security operatives had been deployed to the scene of the incidents while efforts were on to arrest the perpetrators

    • Party politics has been a bane that has eaten deep into the Nigerian political fabrics, it’s high time we focus on the ability and capacity of the individuals to perform irrespective of the party they belong to, Nigeria has long dwelt and fought because of party affiliations, it’s high time we have a rethink and make a change.

  5. When a country doesn’t treasure and prioritize its youth and national human resource, they become the handtool of evil minded and egotistic political aspirants. If we run a good social system whereby the country touch lives of the citizens directly, these wouldn’t have taken place!

  6. Will they ever be a peaceful election?
    Nobody should go out and die to vote for any election that is not worth it. After all many of them make empty promises, emerging the winner satisfy his needs first and gives crumbs to the masses.

  8. This every sad occurrence is almost like a part us. Every election period, lots of youths die. Most of these avoidable deaths can be attributed directly and sometimes indirectly to politics, because of material gains, youths allow themselves to be used often to their detriment.

  9. We fail to understand that when this politians needs us to do their campaign (dirty work) we are referred to as fellow Nigerian but after they win we are been refered to as political thugs. We have never taking time to ask ourselves why their children are never involved in the campaign it is because they believe we need their little change to survive. Nigeria youth should understand that party or no party we are one so therefore we should stop fighting against each other.
