Court Stops APC Chairman From Parading Himself As Party Chair

A Benue State High Court has restrained the suspended state chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Austin Agada from parading himself as the chairman of the party following his suspension by his ward chairman and six others on Tuesday.

This comes as the APC in the state has accused the Chief of Staff to the Governor of Benue State Paul Biam and the Commissioner for Water Resources and Environment and Climate Ugwu Odoh of leading policemen and the army to attack the party’s secretariat during a press conference by the Owukpa Ehaje Ward One chairman and his executive members.

Pandemonium broke out when security men in plain clothes invaded the venue of the press conference, attacking all in sight.

The APC chairman of Owukpa Ehaje Ward One explained that the entire exco was at the secretariat to pass a vote of confidence on the chairman and distance themselves from those who suspended the chairman.

Meanwhile, Agada told journalists that the plot to forcefully remove him as chairman over allegations of anti-party activities was the reason for the attack.
