Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that pandemonium broke out at the campaign rally of the ruling All Progressives Congress in Abeokuta.

The campaign took a new twist when Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun, came on stage to campaign for the APC and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM).

In response, former governor Aregbesola came on stage to oppose the governor, asking the people to vote for only the candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress

After Aregbesola started speaking, supporters of the APM verbally opposed him and it degenerated into a rowdy session when Adams Oshiomhole, the APC national chairman came on stage. Supporters took laws into their hands and started throwing things at the APC leaders.
