HAPPENING LIVE: WAR ZONE!!! Massive Protest As Heavy Security Takes Over APC Secretariat At Bola Tinubu’s Home State

Security has been beefed up around the All Progressives Congress, APC, Secretariat, in Lagos State, ahead of the State’s Chapter Congress, on Saturday.

Lagos is the home State of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu.

A News Agency of Nigeria’s, NAN, Correspondent who was at the Ikeja Secretariat of the party, reported that scores of armed security officials were stationed around the Secretariat, where the Congress would be held.

Just opposite the Secretariat, some armed Policemen were seen standing by an Armoured Personnel Carrier stationed there.

The others were in three patrol vans watching around the Secretariat, to prevent any threats to security.

Private security guards manning the Secretariat gate were also seen screening visitors to the party’s office.

However, the heavy security did not prevent some party members from staging a protest at the Secretariat.

No fewer than 100 protesters, all female, from the Odi-Olowo area of the State, protested the candidature of one Mrs. Adeyemi Idera, for an Executive position in Saturday’s Congress.

The women, all carrying placards rejecting Idera, said that the Chieftain no longer enjoyed the support of members in Odi-Olowo.

“We do not want her. She should not represent us. She does not enjoy our support’, Alhaja Mulikat Adeola, who led the protest, said.

Vice Chairman of the party in the State, Mr. Funsho Ologunde, who addressed the protesters, urged them to remain calm.

He revealed that the protest was not necessary, as the Chieftain’s name was not on the list of candidates.

“We are in the month of Ramadan, so we should not embark on things that will wear us out.

“The protest is not necessary, the name of Idera is not on the candidates’ list. That, I can assure you”, he said.

Speaking on preparations for the Congress, the Assistant Publicity of the party in the State, Mr. Abiodun Salami, maintained that all arrangements had been concluded.

He said no fewer than 2,500 delegates would elect 27 Executive members at the Congress.

Salami said one of the Executive positions would be reserved for a member living with disability, in line with the party’s policy of inclusiveness.

He stated that the security in place at the Secretariat, on Friday, was a measure of the watertight security that would be in place at the Congress proper, on Saturday.

“We are set for the Congress on Saturday. The candidates have obtained forms and submitted.

“All arrangements have been perfected, including security; you can see the atmosphere, it is going to be watertight tomorrow.

“We are set for our State Congress, and I can assure, it is going to be successful”, he said.
