Yenagoa - Supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have again clashed with those of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State, reports Leadership.

The clash, which left two people fatally injured, happened on Sunday along the Agudama-Ekpetiama communities in Yenagoa local government area of the state.

Trouble started when some suspected thugs dressed in APC campaign T-shirts and led by a loyalist of the former deputy governor, Werinipre Seibarugu, allegedly invaded the Yenagoa communities under cover of darkness and attacked some known PDP youths in the area.
