I just left the Oyo state secretariat of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) which is currently under heavy security as heavily armed members of the Nigerian Police Force Oyo State Command are closely watching developments at the secretariat.
Thousands of members of the political party are also at the secretariat including popular politicians such as the immediate past governor of Oyo state Otunba Adebayo Alao Akala.
Those that spoke to IBPulse.com said the strong police presence was meant to ensure safety of lives and properties considering the fact that there are disagreements and divisions within the party concerning leadership.
The policemen are also trying to ensure that hoodlums do not hijack the political tension to reenact the mayhem that occurred last week that resulted in the destruction of buildings, goods and other properties.
I would recommend you avoid this route if possible.
