APC members throw chairs at each other as stakeholders meeting turns violence in Kwara (video)

The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State took another dimension on Wednesday as some aggrieved party members loyal to the State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq beat up the State Caretaker Chairman, Bashir Bolarinwa.

The aggrieved members and supporters of the Caretaker Chairman were sighted throwing chairs and other harmful objects at each other at the venue of the stakeholders meeting.

The party membership committee headed by Senator John Danboi had arrived the State to commence the party membership/revalidation exercise but was disrupted over who is the authentic State Caretaker Chairman between Bashir Bolarinwa and Abdulahi Samari.

Meanwhile, the State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq at another location flagged off the registration exercise where he had his membership revalidated.

Attempts by the APC National Caretaker Committee Chairman, Mai Mala Buni, and Governor Sani Bello of Niger State to intervene have not been fruitful.

During the heated argument, iron chairs and other valuable materials in the hall were freely used by the aggrieved members of the opposing camps who freely attacked one another and about 10 people sustained injuries.

The crowded banquet hall soon became virtually empty as members vacated the venue and ran away for safety.
