APC members attack chairman at party secretariat in Lagos (video)

Members of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in Lagos State attacked the party’s chairman, Cornelius Ojelabi, at the partys secretariat, in Acme, Ogba, Ikeja.

The party is currently engulfed in crisis due to a dispute among stakeholders over leadership in Local Government Areas (LGAs). 

The crisis snowballed into an attack on the chairman yesterday, June 24.

According to a viral video trending online, Ojelabi was attacked by aggrieved party members from Alimosho Local Government, who stormed the secretariat to express their displeasure on how Ojelabi was managing the crisis in their local government. 

The protesters accused him of bias and attempted to beat him. They even went as far as removing his cap from his head.

However, policemen intervened and rescued the chairman.

It was gathered that the protesters, who had converged on the partys secretariat, took the decision when Ojelabi turned down their request for possible solutions to end the leadership crisis rocking the party chapter in Alimosho. Rather than accept their requests, Ojelabi allegedly insisted that the current public officeholders must be on seat during a meeting that would deliberate on their wish and recommendation for APC in Alimosho.
