3 killed as APC and PDP supporters Clash in Bayelsa (PHOTOS)

A heavy Clash between supporters of Nigeria’s biggest Political parties, The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and the All Progressives Congress, APC has led to the death of 3 people in Bayelsa.

One of those killed was identified as spokesman of the Ijaw Youths Council (IYC), even as both sides have given conflicting reasons for the attacks.

Some PDP supporters claimed that the death of the three persons occurred during a failed attempt on the life of the caretaker Chairman of Brass council, Mr. Victor Isaiah.

But APC supporters alleged that over 10 armed men, hired from a neighbouring community, were challenged by the indigenes of the community and some members of IYC, before they were attacked with machetes and guns.

A post from one of the supporters of the PDP in Brass monitored on Victor Isaiah’s Facebook page indicated that the clash was allegedly due to provocation from some APC youths following an attack on the Special Adviser on Youths Matters to the council’s chairman.

“A few days ago, some suspected armed APC youths attacked the LGA chair’s aide and the PDP youths. Now they attempted to assassinate the caretaker chairman of the council,” the poster indicated.
