Armed officers and men from the Federal Capital Territory Police Command on Thursday sealed the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress.

Two patrol vehicles were packed strategically in front of the main entrance.

The problem in the APC NWC came to a head on Tuesday last week when the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja upheld the suspension of the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, by the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory.

At an emergency meeting on the evening of the same day, 17 members of the NWC loyal to Oshiomhole, appointed a former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, as acting chairman.

Giadom, in a counter move, together with two other NWC members, addressed a press conference on June 17, when he declared himself as the acting chairman. He backed his action with the judgment of the FCT high court, which in March gave him the go-ahead to be the acting national chairman.

Despite his suspension by two Port Harcourt courts and his replacement as the deputy national secretary, Giadom on Tuesday issued a notice of the APC NEC meeting, which would hold today (Thursday).

But the Ajimobi-led NWC on Tuesday said having been suspended from the NWC, Giadom was not qualified to convene the NEC meeting.

Meanwhile, the Ajimobi-led NWC had raised the alarm over an alleged plot by some unnamed persons to burn down the APC National Secretariat.

The National Vice-Chairman (South-South), Hilliard Eta, who raised the alarm while speaking to journalists in Abuja, on Wednesday, also alleged that his life was being threatened.
