LG secretariat set ablaze By APC members

Protests over the conduct of All Progressives Congress, APC, local government council primaries snowballed, Saturday night, into the burning of the Amuwo Odofin Local Government Secretariat, in FESTAC Town.

As part of preparations ahead of the July 22 local governments election, Lagos State chapter of APC, on Saturday, held its primary election to nominate its chairmanship candidates in the 20 Local Government areas and the 37 Local Council Development areas, LCDAs, at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere.

The gathering, however, subsequently degenerated into violence as party delegates rose up against alleged moves to impose some persons as candidates.

irate youths, Saturday evening, stormed the Amuwo-Odofin secretariat and set it on fire to protest what they alleged as an attempt by the party leadership in the council to impose and present unpopular candidate for the forthcoming council polls.
