During the violence, vehicles were being damaged, residents hastily shut their shops. According to eyewitnesses, one of the aspirants, Bowale Sosimi, in whose favour the rally was organised narrowly escaped being killed. It was learnt that the crisis in the area was not unconnected with the upcoming Local Government election in the area. It was also learnt that Bobo had gone to seek support in one of the wards, believed to be his opposition’s stronghold, when the crisis started.
According to DailyPost, the party ticket is being fought for between two major aspirants – Sosimi (popularly called Bobo) and Hammed Salawu ( popularly known as Dullar) under the APC.
Following the crisis, residents of Somolu have appealed to the leadership of the APC not to adopt any of the candidates allegedly causing violence. One of them, who is the spokesperson of the Progressive Youths of Somolu, Adeshina Abiodun, said residents preferred peaceful candidates.
He alleged that the selection of either of the two candidates identified was causing fear among residents. He said, “At present, two people have reportedly been favoured as the chairmanship candidates in Somolu Local Government under APC. It is painful that majority of us (residents) of Somolu believe that these individuals fuel crisis and we are tired of violence in our area.
