Thugs have attempted to disrupt the parallel All Progressives Congress’ State Party Congress being organised by The Osun Progressives (TOP), a caucus of the party in the state.
SDT gathered that there was sporadic gunshots fired as the thugs engaged in a gun duel with personnel of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
They were however no match for the NSCDC personnel.
Recall that the Gbenga Elegbeleye-led APC State Congress Committee had scheduled the exercise for the Osogbo City Stadium by 10am while TOP slated theirs for the open space opposite LadSol Water factory, Gbongan-Ibadan road, Ogo-Oluwa, Osogbo.
Meanwhile, a new Chairman for the APC has been elected during the parallel congress.
Rasaq Salinsile was elected State Party Chairman by delegates who are TOP members during the parallel state congress.
Before his election, he was the Secretary of the APC state caretaker committee and is a staunch member of The Osun Progressives.
Another congress as at press time is being held at the Osogbo City Stadium where Adegboyega Famodun, the Caretaker Committee Chairman is seeking election as the APC State Chairman.
