Abeokuta - Political thugs suspected to be members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday attacked some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State, reports Punch.
The incident happened at the Ogun State Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Isabo, Abeokuta, the state capital.
The thugs, who were armed with canes and other weapons, flogged the PDP chieftains who had converged on the court’s premises.
