BREAKING NEWS: Tension as Ogun APC protesters, security operatives trade words at INEC HQ

There was tension on Thursday at the Headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission as protesters from Yewa Senatorial District in Ogun State exchanged words with security operatives.

The protesters numbering over 200 under the aegis of Masses Against Electoral Fraud, are all members of the All Progressives Congress and Yewa Collective Action Movement.

They were protesting against the alleged irregularities which produced Dapo Abiodun as the governorship candidate of APC in Ogun State.

As early as 8:30am, the protesters bearing anti-APC placards, including “INEC must disqualify Dapo Abiodun” and “Security agencies should investigate Dapo Abiodun”, marched towards INEC office.

But they were barred from getting close to the electoral commission headquarters by a combined team of security agencies, who insisted that the protesters cannot block the road.

While the security agencies were asking them to move or regret their actions, the protesters said they were on a legitimate mission.

The protesters insisted on going into the INEC  office, even as the police and officers of the Department of State Services threatened to shoot at them if they do not go back.

The protesters went ahead with the protest and thereafter proceeded to APC national secretariat.

The spokesperson of the protesters and chieftain of APC in Ogun state, Ishola Adeshina, told The PUNCH that “the emergence of Dapo Abiodun is a fraud.”

He called on the chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu and the relevant organs of the commission not to recognise Dapo Abiodun until all cases were settled.
