The mass defections took place in Taiwo area of Ilorin, the state capital and were led by a former member of the state house of assembly, Hon. Bamidele Aluko.Before his defection, Aluko was a staunch foot soldier of Senator Bukola Saraki.

Hon Aluko, leader of the decampees, was chairman of the Kwara united football club and the PDP leader in Badari ward of Ilorin west, the most populated local government area of Kwara State.

Also today in Ilorin, over 500 PDP members from Asa local government area joined the APC.
