The Oyo State Police Command on Friday confirmed the clash between supporters of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Thursday in Ibadan.
The clash occurred at the Ile-tuntun area in the Ibadan South-East Local Government Area, leaving three persons dead.
Adewale Osifeso, the state Police Public Relations Officer, disclosed this during a radio programme in Ibadan on Friday.
Osifeso said the Police command had since commenced the probe into the incident, noting that the culprits would be brought to book.
“Yes, the unfortunate incident did occur yesterday(Thursday), and as we speak, an investigation has commenced into unravelling the root cause of the incident. Oyo State is the cradle of sophistication, and the world depends on Oyo for many things; we should not continue in the trajectory known for hooliganism”, he said.
