The attack took place shortly after the governorship and house of assembly elections were held in most parts of the state.

A viral video depicts two young Igbo men being carried into a vehicle after allegedly being injured by suspected political thugs near Festac Town in the Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area; an area significantly dominated by Southeasterners.

In response, the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed that normalcy has been restored by the security agency. The spokesperson stated that an intra-community fight broke out in the area earlier this morning, leading to property damage.
