There was a pandemonium on Friday, at the residence of the Osun State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) party Chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun, in Osogbo, as police operatives dispersed some aggrieved members of the party who stormed the area to protest over alleged manipulation of elections results for Ila/Ifedayo/Boluwaduro federal Constituency.
The aggrieved members of APC it was gathered stormed the residence of the Chairman to protest against the alleged rigging of the primary election result.
It was gathered that a House of Representatives aspirant, Ismail Kolawole, from the Ila federal constituency who led the protest was arrested by the police.
The protesters, who were dispersed by gunshot and teargas, accused the party of rigging the primary election in favour of Commissioner for Tourism, Adebisi Obawale, who was declared the winner after Kolawole had allegedly won the primary.
The protesters threatened to leave the party if the party fail to address the matter and declare the winner of the primary election.
