Security agents have condone off the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja.
The security agents had arrived the headquarters of the ruling party in the early hours of Monday with over 70 battle ready personnel, barricaded all the Blantyre Street, stopping all human and vehicular movements into the Secretariat.
The few Secretariat staff that were allowed entrance into the complex were thoroughly screened, just as visitors and journalists were completely blanked out from entering the Secretariat.
Although no member of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) was on ground to speak on the development, security details attached to the party, said that the security measure became very important because of the meeting by the State Chairmen of the party.
“We were given order to allow only the State Chairmen into the Secretariat. We don’t also know what is happening but we are only obeying the order from above. You can see that even your media centre has been locked,” the security agent said.
Meanwhile, the national leadership of the party has dismissed the report of change in the leadership of the party, describing it as fake news. The statement signed by the Secretary APC Caretaker Committee, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, urged members and supporters of the party to remain calm.
