A former member of the House of Representatives, Opeyemi Bamidele, and another party loyalist have been shot.
The incident occurred on Friday in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, as a result of an accidental discharge.
The victims were hit by the bullets during the takeoff campaign of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Kayode Fayemi.
APC chairman in the state, Mr Jide Awe, confirmed the incident to Channels Television.
He, however, noted that the victims have been rushed to the hospital.
