Ahead of the Osun state governorship election, which will hold on August 9, a political clash was averted today in Ibokun, headquarters of Obokun Local Government of between loyalists of PDP Candidate, Omisore and Governor Aregbesola, Vanuguard reports.

The Osun state command was reported to have prevented the violence, which started with suspected political thugs destroying, defacing Governor Aregbesola's political bill boards, posters and replacing them with PDP candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore's. The incident happened during the PDP campaign rally in Ibokun.

The hoodlums were soon challenged by some youths in the town, who demanded to know the reason for the destruction of Aregbesola's posters and billboards, which, in turn, led to a hot exchange of words between the two parties. However, the timely intervention of the monarch of the community, Alademure of Ibokun, Oba Festus Awogboro, saved the situation from degenerating into full-blown political crisis in the state.

At the time of filling this report, relative calm have returned to the community, while Senator Iyiola Omisore continued with his door-to-door rally in the area.

The State Police Commissioner, Alhaji Ibrahim Maishanu, said that the command will not hesitate to deal with anybody according to the laws whose action is found wanting in his regards. However, no arrests have been made by the police so far.
