Ado-Ekiti - A violent clash between APC and PDP supporters on Sunday claimed a motorcyclist in Ado-Ekiti, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
NAN also gathered that the clash left several other persons critically injured.
Eye witnesses said trouble started at about 8 a.m. when some APC members trooped out to the city centre with brooms to conduct a "cleaning" exercise following Saturday’s PDP rally for its flagbearer in the June 21 guber election, Ayo Fayose.
The APC members were said to have been stopped midway by a combined team of security agents who were still keeping vigil in the Ekiti capital.
The APC members, who were said to have initially resisted the directive to halt the cleaning exercise, were later dispersed with tear gas.
The clash became bloody when one of the rival party members was said to have been shot dead by unknown persons.
Eyewitnesses said the incident left no fewer than four vehicles damaged while six motorcycles were burnt.
