There seems to be serious trouble brewing within the Ogun State Chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC as the Governor of the state, Ibikunle Amosun ordered the removal of the Ogun APC Gubernatorial Flag Bearer, Dapo Abiodun from the APC Presidential campaign venue.
It was also gathered that Rival supporters of Governor Ibikunle Amosun and the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, clashed heavily.
The MKO Abiola International Stadium, Abeokuta, venue of the rally, was being manned by heavy security personnel, comprising Army, Police, DSS and NSCDC officials.
Tension began to build up when it became clear that APC supporters loyal to Amosun and Abiodun as well as loyalists of the Allied People’s Movement (APM) gubernatorial candidate, Hon. Adekunle Akinlade were desperate to outshine one another.
Amosun, who is opposed to the candidature of Abiodun, is supporting Akinlade as his anointed governorship candidate.
At some point, armed security agents had to disperse the surging crowd with tear gas.
However, in the heat of the clash which left several people injured, Amosun accused Police and DSS operatives of bias, saying they prevented a lot of people and admirers of the president from entering into the venue. He appealed to the security agencies to stop preventing supporters of the President from entering the venue.
