BREAKING: Political Thugs Disrupt Collation Of Results At Edo APC Governorship Primary


Suspected political thugs on Saturday disrupted the coalition of results of the primary election of the All Progressives Congress for the governorship election in Edo State.

The results were being collated at the Lushville Hotel and Suite, in GRA, Benin on Saturday.

Results from eight local government areas had already been announced when journalists covering the event were alerted to vacate the centre of the event.

Before journalists could gather their things together, the thugs swooped on the venue after overpowering the police operatives at the gate, PUNCH reports.

Several journalists, including an NTA cameraman and FRCN reporter, were manhandled and their equipment  scattered.

The presence of the state Commissioner of Police, Funsho Adeboye, who was present with the officials of the party at the centre did not deter the hoodlums from engaging in the free-for-all.

At the time of filling this report, it was not yet clear what went wrong.

Results announced before the disruption:
