Some suspected political thugs have been arrested by the Police with a vehicle loaded with arms and ammunition at Ifon, headquarters of Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State.

Starnews Nigeria reports that they are currently been detained at the Police station, at Ifon town, Ondo State.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Tee-Leo Ikoro, who confirmed the arrest of the suspects to Starnews Nigeria, said investigation had commenced to ascertaining the sponsors of the culprits.

Meanwhile, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) have been trading words over the incident.

In a statement on Saturday, by Richard Olatunde, the Spokesperson of Akeredolu/Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organisation, the APC wrote: ”While we commend the Police authority for its gallantry efforts at arresting these hoodlums,we condemn this act in strong terms and call for more investigation into the PDP Campaign activities.”

”This clearly attests to the fact that the PDP, like the proverbial leopard, will never change its spots, with the party engrossed in the use of thuggery to curry electoral victory, even when the people have clearly rejected it.”

”We are relieved that the Police was able to size the sophisticated guns, live cartridges and machetes which could have been used to cut the lives of the innocent people of the state short on the alter of politics.”

On his part, the PDP through a statement by Gbenga Akinmoyo, spokesman of Eyitayo Jegede campaign organization, wrote: ”the general public have been alerted long before now as to the sinister plans being hatched by the ruling APC in Ondo State to adorn political thugs in PDP branded materials to unleash mayhem on itself and the gathering of other political parties with the sole intention of putting the blame on the PDP.”

”The APC who boasted of militancy, arms and ammunition through one of their party chieftains and unleashed unprovoked mayhem on the PDP a few days ago in a botched assassination attempt on the PDP Governorship candidate have moved to the next scene of the unfolding drama.”

”The information of the arrest of some hoodlums in branded vehicles wearing PDP logo at Ifon in Ose LG, whilst our campaign train is due to make a stop in the town, that is presently circulating on Social Media, is nothing but an attempt by the APC to make good its evil plans.”

”While appreciating the security agencies for their vigilance in averting a needless mayhem, we urge the general public to remain focused and not fall for the antics of the ruling APC who are determined to draw us into unproductive arguments that can distract us from those issues that border on the welfare of our people and failure of the APC government in addressing them.”
