Police Intervene After AAC Factions Clash At INEC HQ

Security operatives on Monday have arrested some members of the African Alliance Congress (AAC), following their protest march to the Headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC), to protest the commission’s alleged interference and imposition of an “expelled member” Leonard Ezenwa, on the party.

According to reports, INEC had recognised the Ezenwa led-group as the original owners of the party but the Sowore loyalists are adamant that the decision must be overturned.

The faction loyal to Sowore  had two weeks ago given the electoral body till March 15 to stop meddling in the affairs of the party.

They had asked the INEC Chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, to return the party to the original owners.

The former Presidential candidate of the, Omoyele Sowore, who led the members of the party to the commission, had condemned Mahmood’s action for foistering Ezenwa on the party as Chairman with a view to destabilising and creating confusion in the party.

Sowore was reported to have said the party would mobilise and direct all its members at the expiration of the ultimatum to occupy and shut down all the offices of the commission across the country, while faulting the partisan role played by the commission in giving illegal recognition to Ezenwa.

He faulted the partisan role played by the commission by giving illegal recognition to Ezenwa.
