For the second time in one month, anti-riot Police operatives have taken over Comrade Austin Agade-led All Progressive Congress (APC) Secretariat in Makurdi, Benue state capital .


There are two APC secretariats in Makurdi.


One is controllled by Agada while Benjamin Omakolo takes charge of the other.


The Agada-led APC  State Working Committee (SWC) slated Friday 19 to inaugurate members of the  zoning committee for the forthcoming council polls at the Secretariat .


But as early as 6am anti -riot policemen moved their trucks and blocked all access leading  to the Secretariat.


As of press time, there was confusion as Okada riders believed to be loyal to the Benjamin Omakolo-led APC State Working Commitee, which the Chief Of Staff Paul Biam described as original APC, took over the scene.
