Many injured as pro-Oshiomhole protesters clash in Abuja

shiomhole, pro-Oshiomhole protesters clash in Abuja, APC

Security agencies prevented what could have been a bloodbath on Friday as protesters demanding the sacking of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, and those for him engaged in a free-for-all.

First to assemble at Blantyre street of the APC National Secretariat were the anti-Oshiomhole protesters.

They had earlier protested on Thursday. They disrupted vehicular and human movement.

The situation took a new twist when the pro-Oshiomhole group arrived at the scene leading to a clash.

They freely used dangerous objects,  big sticks, and stones against each other making passers-by to scamper for safety while houses and offices hurriedly shot their entrances.

To arrest the situation, policemen stationed on guard at the secretariat fired canisters of teargas to disperse the groups.

An eye witness said, “They came with all manners of weapons, big stones, and cutlasses, warning everybody along their way to disappear or be killed.

“We had to run for cover especially when the teargas from the security agents became unbearable.”

However, normalcy has returned to the area as security agencies have restored order.
