There were reports of gunmen sporadic shootings in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, Sunday morning, as yet to be identified hoodlums took positions at major flag points in the town.
Residents, as well as commuters scampered to safety as the shootings lasted.

Many Church worshippers stayed indoors while many others who set out early enough turned back in order not to be caught in the melee.
As the time of filling this report, major streets were deserted while only few commercial motorcyclists plied the road.
Recall that two persons were feared killed in the Saturday fight between rival political parties at Itaji-Ekiti.
There had been accusations and counter accusations on the matter while Police and government are yet to make official statement o the dangerous political development.
