Breaking News: Police Seal Off APC National Secretariat In Abuja

The Nigeria Police has sealed off the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja on the orders of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu.

An impeccable source who is privy to the story said the seal off of the National Secretariat was to enable the Police boss and the two NWC groups review and discuss the various court orders being brandished.

Meanwhile, A Rivers High Court has restrained former Deputy National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Victor Giadom from parading himself as a member or officer of the party.

Justice C. Nwogu gave the order in a suit filed by Okechukwu Chidor Ogbonna and Mac-Lords Peterson against APC Rivers chapter; Acting Chairman of the chapter Igo Aguma; Victor Giadom and Golden Chioma in Port-Harcourt.

The court stated having been suspended by the State Executive Committee (SEC) of APC, Giadom should not participate in the activities of the party pending the determination of the substantive case.

The judge ruled: “An order of interim order is hereby made restraining the third defendant from parading himself as an officer or member… or exercising any right or privilege accruable to members….”

APC Rivers had forwarded Barrister Worgu Boms as a replacement to National Working Committee (NWC), which swore him in on Monday.

The Judge adjourned further hearing in the suit to July 9 2020.

This is not the first time, but the third that the APC National Secretariat will be locked down as a result of a leadership tussle.

The National Secretariat was closed down in February 2020, when a Federal High Court suspended the former chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomole.
