Violence broke out during the All Progressives Congress (APC) screening exercise for chairmanship candidates in the upcoming September 21 council polls, abruptly ending the event. Party loyalists protested the lack of inclusivity, fairness, and transparency, leading to chaos at the Bikgate Hotel in Omu-Aran.

Scores of delegates and attendees fled in different directions as the situation escalated, resulting in injuries.

The trouble allegedly started when some party aspirants protested the process and guidelines, claiming that party leader Oloriewe Raheem Adedoyin had been mandated by the governor to deliver Hon Azeez Yakub as the party candidate.

The event was marred by violence, with allegations of unfair practices, bias, and a lack of transparency in the decision-making process. Aggrieved members initially protested and agitated, but the situation later degenerated into physical clashes between supporters of different aspirants.

The situation remains unclear, with uncertainty surrounding its resolution.
