Security Agents Barricade Venue of Makarfi-led PDP Meeting


By Onyebuchi Ezigbo

The meeting of the stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), loyal to the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee scheduled to hold at the International Conference Centre, Abuja may be aborted as security agents have barricaded the venue of the meeting.

THISDAY gathered that security agents have locked up the entrance gate to the venue of the party meeting and are turning people back.

It was learnt that security operatives took over the main routes to the conference centre early Monday morning, ostensibly to maintain peace, but the stern-looking policemen at the gates were refusing people entry into the premises.

Although the PDP meeting is scheduled to take off at 2pm, THISDAY gathered that the Makarfi-led committee has reacted promptly and moved the meeting to the Ekiti State Government Lodge in Asokoro, Abuja.

More to come…
