The Oyo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress has said its ward congresses were temporarily delayed on Saturday after some miscreants led by some party members attacked the state party secretariat at Oke Ado area in Ibadan, the state capital.
In a statement, the state Secretary of the party, Mr. Mojeed Olaoya, said Minister of communication, Alhaji Adebayo Shittu, led about 150 armed miscreants to the party’s stakeholders’ meeting.
