Kwara LG Polls: APC Screening Exercise Turns Violent In Irepodun LG Over Transparency Issues

Violence broke out at the All Progressives Congress (APC) screening exercise for chairmanship candidates in Irepodun Local Government Area, Kwara State, ahead of the September 21 council polls. The event, held at the Bikgate Hotel in Omu-Aran, was disrupted by party loyalists who protested the lack of inclusivity, fairness, and transparency in the screening process.

The protests turned violent, forcing the abandonment of the exercise.

Scores of delegates and attendees fled in different directions as the situation escalated, resulting in injuries.

According to our source, the trouble allegedly started when some party aspirants protested the process and guidelines, claiming that party leader Oloriewe Raheem Adedoyin had been mandated by the governor to deliver Hon Azeez Yakub as the party candidate.

The event was marred by violence, with allegations of unfair practices, bias, and a lack of transparency in the decision-making process. Aggrieved members initially protested and agitated, but the situation later degenerated into physical clashes between supporters of different aspirants.

The situation remains unclear, with uncertainty surrounding its resolution.
