APC Crisis Deepens As Many Are Injured As Opposition Factions Clash by jchima14(: 5:15 pm On Oct 05, 2016

Business activities in Akure, the Ondo State capital, was paralyzed for three hours as supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship aspirant, Mr. Segun Abraham and those of the party’s flag bearer, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, clashed. Abraham was said to have mobilised his supporters from Ikare-Akoko to protest against the candidature of Akeredolu, which caused gridlock for several hours at the popular Oba-Adesida/Oyemekun road. Sources within the party said a national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu has allegedly directed Abraham and his supporters to continue to protest against Akeredolu since he was said to have asked Chief Olusola Oke to decamp to Alliance for Democracy, AD. Abraham’s supporters, armed with placards moved from Fiwaye Rounabout to the party secretariat.

On getting to the secretariat, the leader of the protesters, Mr Enas Mohammed addressed reporters where he gave reasons for the rejection of Akeredolu as the candidate of the party. Pandemonium was said to have broken out when supporters of Abraham allegedly destroyed posters of Akeredolu. This was said to have infuriated loyalists of Akeredolu, thereby disrupting the protest. It was gathered that some policemen, men of the National Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, and journalists ran for their lives. Scores of supporters and passersby sustained injuries. But the party’s Publicity Secretary, Omooba Abayomi Adesanya described the protesters protesting against Akeredolu’s candidature as hired hungry youths from Kogi, Ekiti and Edo states who could do anything for just N2000.
