By Ayo Balogun, Lagos – Armed policemen have dispersed political thugs who have invaded the venue of the Lagos All Progressive Congress (APC) primaries with series of gunshots.
Live bullets were released by policemen outside the Onikan Stadium in a bid to prevent political thugs from hijacking the ongoing primaries.
There was pandemonium as series of gunshots rent the air as people scamper to safety to avoid being hit by stray bullets.
Journalists who were sending their stories at the MUSON Car Park have to lie on the ground to avoid being hit by bullets.
The political thugs scampered and later regroup and came back to the venue, but the police are keeping them in check.
Delegates who have voted hurriedly left the venue in groups and with trepidation as the chaos reign supreme outside the stadium.
Earlier, there was an announcement from the podium that policemen were needed urgently outside the stadium as thugs harassed delegates, stealing their phones and other belongings.
With lapse in security, the hoodlums have found their way into the stadium where they smoke Indian hemp and other dangerous substances that made them high.
As at the time of filing this report at 8pm (Nigerian time), voting was still ongoing.
