The residence of Nathaniel Agunbiade, the Osun Commissioner for Lands and Physical Planning was attacked early on Monday.
It was learnt that the said hoodlums suspected to be political thugs launched the attack on the Erinmo Ijesa town and vandalised his properties and many cars.
It was also reported that several aides of the Commissioner were injured while attempting to resist the attackers.
A member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who preferred anonymity revealed that the attack on the commissioner might not be unconnected with the victory of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Saturday’s Osun gubernatorial election.
He also stated the hoodlums who were hitherto operating underground had suddenly surfaced and had taken to major towns in the state to destroy properties and attack members of the APC.
