As the protest against police brutality and unprofessional conduct continued in Ondo State, some suspected angry youths on Wednesday set ablaze the secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Akure, Ondo State capital.
The office located at Alagbaka Area of the state capital, was torched by the angry youths while many items were destroyed by them.
The incident happened few hours after some of them also invaded the the secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) situated at Oyemekun road.
The Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Kennedy Peretei who confirmed the incident, said, ” The PDP State Secretariat has been razed down.
“One of the policemen on duty escaped by whiskers but his vehicle was burnt down as well as the coaster bus. This is very unfortunate and a grave danger to our democracy.”
Peretei alleged the APC responsible for the arson saying the incident happened barely three hours after the leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC) fingered the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for setting its secretariat on fire.
Peretei said APC thugs mobilised themselves and set ablaze the PDP State Secretariat in Akure.
