The security details attached to the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Abdulahi Adamu, and members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) clashed on Wednesday.
The APC national secretariat became a battle ground as the Police released several canisters of teargas to disperse the angry NANS members, sending the secretariat staff and others to scamper for their safety.
Security was immediately beefed up around the secretariat after a combined security forces guarding the secretariat used force on the disgruntled NANS members.
Eyewitness said the conflict started when the Chairman’s security details, allegedly acting on his order, tried to stop the NANS members from gaining entry into the secretariat.
A security source explained that Segun Dada, an aspirant for the position of National Youth Leader, who stepped down for the current youth leader, had led a delegation to brief the party’s leadership on NANS election.
