The Inspector General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu, on Tuesday sealed the National Secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
It was gathered that the IGP’s order was carried out by the FCT Commissioner of Police who sent down detachment of policemen to execute the task.
A party source told The Nation that the IGP will be meeting with the two warring camps within the party National Working Committee, NWC, at the force headquarters by 1pm.
Reacting to the development, the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, in a statement, said the personnel were deployed to ensure there was no breakdown of law and order as the two factions of the party remain at daggers drawn.
“Personnel of the Nigeria Police Force have been deployed to the National Secretariat of the All Progressive Congress, located at Blantyre Crescent, Wuse II, Abuja.
“The deployment is a proactive move by the Force to maintain peace and ensure there is no breakdown of law and order at the Secretariat.
“The presence of police personnel at the Secretariat is not to seal-up the Complex as has been reported in some quarters but rather to prevent any untoward situation within and around the APC National Secretariat.
“Members of the APC as well staff of the Secretariat are therefore at liberty to conduct their legitimate businesses, in and around the Secretariat as always,” the statement read.
