one dead, others injured at the APC Inauguration of APCchairman
National leadership of the APC had appointed Joseph Fafi as the acting Chairman.
The appointment followed the expulsion of former chairman, Tiwei Orunimighe; his deputy, Eddy Julius; and secretary, Marlin Daniel, for alleged anti-party activities.
The APC had earlier mandated its national vice chairman, south-south, Ntufam Eta to coordinate the affairs of the party in the state.
Eta directed Fafi to take charge of the party as chairman, pending the ratification of his position by the National Working Committee of the party.
At the inauguration, Vanguard reports that violence erupted at the venue as many supporters of the party gathered for the commencement of the ceremony.
Hoodlums allegedly loyal to the expelled party chairman invaded the venue, firing gunshots to scare the people away.
Security operatives were consequently deployed to the area to forestall further breakdown of law and order.
