An All Progressives Congress (APC) agent in Esa-Odo of Osun state, Adebiyi Ajibade, was hacked to death by some thugs after the elections on Saturday 22 Sept. 2018. The ugly incident started from Polling Booth Unit 05 Ward 09, United Primary School, Esa Odo around 12:00 noon on Saturday 22nd September 2018.
Some Esa Odo party members who are said to be cult members, reportedly requested for money from the APC party agent at the polling booth claiming they voted for APC.
The party agent told them categorically that no money was given to him or any other member to buy votes and that the party was not sharing money.
The thugs threatened and harassed the party agent and told him not to leave the polling unit or get out of town that night.
On his way home later in the evening at about 8:30 pm, the deceased (late Adebiyi Ajibade) and his friend Mr. Femi Egundabi waited for one Mr. Asubiaro Olasunkanmi at Abosad filling Station Esa Odo.
They sighted these same guys that demanded for money for voting – coming in their direction with arms and ammunition such as axe, knife and cutlass, as they attacked them.
The deceased was stabbed in the chest, while Femi Eegundabi Femi was able to escape from the gang.
Mr. Adebiyi Ajibade was rushed to a private hospital (Odufunke Hospital Ijeda-Ijesha) for treatment at about 9.30 pm on Saturday 22nd September, 2018. He was treated throughout that night but he gave up the ghost on Sunday morning around 6.00 am.
This case has been reported at Esa-Oke police station. The body of deceased has been deposited at Wesley Hospital, Ilesha.
