However, he Chairman of PDP in the council, Tunde Fabiyi, while confirming the incident, made it known that the bullet that hit Jimi Agbaje’s supporter was from the rifle of one of the policemen attached to the politician who wanted to scare the thugs away from his boss, but things went wrong.
Tunde said: “Yes, it was true a PDP supporter was shot, but it is not as it is being painted by the social media. What really happened was that Agbaje was mobbed by some young boys after the rally, and in a bid to disperse the crowd, a shot was fired, which incidentally hit one of those who came with Agbaje.”
