JUST IN: APC CRISIS: Violence breaks out at Ekiti APC primary, ballot boxes disappears


The governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state has been marred by violence.

The exercise, which started hours behind schedule, had been going on smoothly until some agents protested that there were plots to manipulate the exercise.

Security personnel struggled with one of the persons carrying a ballot box and in the process the box fell while its content spilled to the ground.

Some aggrieved persons smashed boxes on the ground while policemen and operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) managed to secure some boxes.

Tanko Al-Makura, chairman of the committee organising the election, is currently in a meeting with some stakeholders.
