The Osun State Police Command, yesterday, arrested four suspected thugs with guns in Osogbo, Osun State.
A resident of Osogbo said the suspects were among the thugs hired by some politicians to disrupt the zonal congress of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Another resident, Funso Babatunde, said the thugs started the fight from a beer joint, not the venue of the congress.
There was heavy deployment of security men around WOCDIF centre, the venue of the PDP congress to prevent thugs form disrupting the exercise.
The Police Public Relations Officer for Osun State Police Command, Yemisi Opalola, confirmed the arrest of the suspects.
The thugs were arrested when they engaged another set of touts in a fight but the quick intervention of policemen ended the violence.
The PPRO said “Four suspected thugs were arrested. They are in custody. Pump action guns were found in their possession. Investigation is ongoing. They would face the full wrath of the law.”
