Two people have been shot dead in Surulere area of Lagos as the All Progressives Congress (APC) conducts its chairmanship and councillorship primaries across the state.
The killings took place at Haastrup Street, off Ayelera Street in Surulere.
Distraught residents have identified two notorious thugs in the area as being allegedly behind the killings. The two thugs are: Baresi and Yussuf Afolabi, otherwise known as Faida.
On his part, Baresi is the chairman of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) Ojuelegba branch. The two are political thugs allegedly working for Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Prior to shooting the two boys to death, Baresi had led thugs to Rabiatu Thompson Primary School, another voting venue. At the place, Baresi and his boys wielding an English pistol and pump action guns chased voters away.
