Africa News 24 learned that the incident occurred after suspected political thugs invaded the governorship campaign rally of the APC in the state.
The development left several people injured, including three journalists who sustained bullet wounds.
It was gathered that the hoodlums, said to be members of the National Union Road Transport Workers (NURTW), invaded the Skypower Ground Ikeja venue of the campaign with guns, daggers and other dangerous weapons.
The violence broke out mid-way into the programme, cutting short the event as the hoodlums were said to have shot sporadically in different directions, engaging each other in a fight.
It was learned that members of the party scampered for safety to avoid being hit by bullets fired indiscriminately by the hoodlums, while security operatives tried to control the situation.

APC is a violent party. Here’s MC Oluomo being rescued after being stabbed by rival thugs at #APCLagosRally. If they can have this kind of violence at their own event, imagine what they have in stock for opposition. APC is violence and violence is APC!pic.twitter.com/niR130ug3e
