    APC convention: Members break entrance, force way into venue

    Members of the All Progressives Congress who gathered at the venue of the convention at Eagle Square were seen pushing down the demarcated entrance in attempts to force their way in.

    In a video posted by @IfedolapoOsun on Twitter, the members eventually fell the demarcation to gain entrance.

    “As we earlier said yesterday, the fight is about to start. They are running kitikiti, katakata
    Video: Aggrieved APC members break entrance,” he tweeted.

    The policemen were equally seen pushing back the people, hitting them with batons as they tried to raise the fallen demarcation again.

    Earlier, the members were seen queuing in an orderly manner as they entered the venue.
    The PUNCH had earlier reported that security operatives were heavily positioned at the venue

    The security operatives were placed at strategic locations around Eagles Square.

    The operatives combine soldiers, policemen, men of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, and other paramilitary operatives from the Federal Road Safety Commission, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, and the Nigeria Immigration Service.

    Our correspondent, who moved around the venue of the convention, observed that police patrol vans, manned by armed policemen, were stationed at strategic locations around the Eagle Square.

    Also, stop and search was for those who attempted to pass through the road that linked the venue while vehicular movements were restricted and several vehicles were also turned back by security operatives.
