APC primary turns bloody in Benue as angry members beat up state party chairman
The Benue State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, held primary elections on Friday, which were marred by disputes and violence in several wards.
According to Naijacrawl, the APC's state chairman, Austin Agada, narrowly avoided being lynched as enraged party members converged on him to denounce violations.
According to eyewitness sources, the incident occurred at Otukpa, the headquarters of the Ogbadibo Local Government Area, where enraged APC members hurled insults at Agada in order to send a message to the party's leadership.
Agada is from Ogbadibo LGA where the angry APC members in a mob-style manhandled him for claiming that there was an election in any part of the Benue South Senatorial District of the state.
In a video that has gone viral, fisticuffs ensued as the state APC Chairman tried to convince the members that the primaries took place.
The APC members were heard shouting at Agada to produce evidence of result sheets and election materials to show where the primaries took place. While attempting to explain, the angry members pounced on him as gunshots could be heard while people scampered for safety.
An eye-witness to the bloody incident, who pleaded anonymity, narrated that it took the swift intervention of security agents to whisk Agada away from being lynched as he was heard shouting for help.
