APC Crisis: Police barricade state secretariat in Benue

The festering crisis in the Benue State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, reared its ugly head again on Friday when security operatives barricaded the party secretariat in Makurdi, to avert a violent clash between the two factions of the party in the state.

DAILY POST gathered that the intervention of security operatives was prompted by an attempt by the Agada faction led by the SGF, Sen George Akume to hold a meeting at the secretariat.

For the second time in one month, anti-riot Police operatives took over the Austin Agade-led, APC, Secretariat in Makurdi, Benue State.

There are two APC secretariats in Makurdi controlled by the two factions in the State led by Agada and Benjamin Omakolo.

The Agada-led State Working Committee, SWC, slated Friday 19 to inaugurate members of the zoning committee for the forthcoming council polls at the Secretariat.

But as early as 6am anti-riot policemen moved their trucks and blocked all access leading to the Secretariat.

As of press time, there was confusion as Okada riders believed to be loyal to the Benjamin Omakolo-led APC SWC and loyal to Benue Governor, Hyacinth Alia, took over the scene.

Governor Alia had banned all political activities and public gatherings in Benue State.
