LG poll: Ogun ACN leaders hide as youths protest

By DAUD OLATUNJI
ABEOKUTA—Hell was almost  let loose yesterday in Abeokuta, following threats by youths of the state Chapter of Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, to protest against Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s alleged imposition of chairmanship candidates for the forthcoming council polls.

Vanguard gathered that, some of the party leaders in the state, especially those loyal to Amosun immediately went into hiding  to evade brutality from the aggrieved members.

It was gathered that the leaders of the  party, having gone into hiding, allegedly convinced the governor to order  the Police Commissioner  to protect  the lives of  the party leaders who reportedly claimed that their lives were in danger.

Policemen were drafted to  the headquarters of the party on Abiola Way, to stall the  planned protest by  the aggrieved party members.
