A 25-year-old man Kunle Olagoke, was on Sunday shot dead at a factional meeting of a political party believed to be the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edunabon, Ife North Local Government Area of Osun State.

It was gathered that he died during a clash of rival factions of the party in the area.

Sources said there had been a leadership tussle between the two factions since last year in Ife North Local Government.

The PDP in the area had been allegedly enmeshed in crisis since the assumption of office of the chairman of the party in the council, Mr. Sam Oyetade.

A leader of the party in the state, who is also a governorship aspirant was not favorably disposed to the emergence of Oyetade as chairman and had made several efforts to get him impeached to no avail.

Trouble started at the ward meeting of the party at the Local Authority Primary School, in Edunabon at about 4.00pm on Sunday when some loyalists of the governorship aspirant allegedly stormed the venue of the meeting and called for the removal of Oyetade as the party chairman.

However, loyalists of Oyetade were said to have resisted attempts to remove him and this resulted in a bloody clash between the two factions.

It was gathered that the deceased died before he getting to the hospital.
A police source, who did not want his name in print, confirmed the incident.
The Publicity Secretary of the state PDP, Prince Bola Ajao, said the state
secretariat of the party was not yet briefed on the matter.

He said that the matter would be properly investigated by the state executive council of the party.
