Police Seals Ekiti APC Secretariat As Primary Crisis Continues



Group calls for fresh APC Ekiti primaries

All Progressives Congress

Ekiti State police has moved in to seal off the party’s secretariat following reports that protests that greeted Saturday ’s inconclusive governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti took a new turn on Monday.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that protesters, who claimed to be sympathetic to the aspiration of the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi, had besieged the secretariat on the Ajilosun- Ikere road where they announced the removal of the state executives led by Chief Jide Awe.

Armed policemen, however, arrived the secretariat shortly and drove everyone out, after which the secretariat was sealed off.

The protesters also announced the immediate formation of a pro-Fayemi caretaker committee.
