Protest mars APC primaries


The LagosState All  Progressives Congress (APC) council primaries election was yesterday marred by protest from aggrieved delegates.

The protest which started when the party started announcing the names of the 18 candidates endorsed by the party leadership almost took a violent turn as the  Chairman Electoral Committee, Tokunbo Afikuyomi was attacked and almost stripped naked.

He had to escape and protected by the police. Those protesting later destroyed the ballot boxes with most of the delegates protecting their heads from stones and chairs been thrown.

So, far the venue has been vacated with only security men taking strategic location to forestall further damages.

Other leaders of the parties present at the venue were led off and protected by security men.
