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.
