Confrontation between the Delta state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the party’s faction led by Senator Francis Okpozo and Hyacinth Enuha has reached a new level as eggs, charms and other ritual items were placed at the entrance of the party’s secretariat in Asaba
According to Sahara Reporters, the Erue-led factional state executive had scheduled a meeting at the party’s secretariat on Monday at 10am.
But when the party members arrived they saw a padlock tied with a red-colored ribbon on the secretariat’s gate and eggs, white chalk tied with pieces of red cloth in a bowl.
The Mr Erue’s faction members believe that the ritual was conducted by the Okpozo-Enuha faction supporters to prevent them from holding the meeting.
However, they failed as the charms were detroyed and the meeting was held as planned. Besides, two weeks ago Mr Erue had accused Mr Enuha of setting on armed thugs on the party secretariat, destroying property and injuring its staff.
Recall that a chieftain of the party in the State and member of the Board of Trustees (BoT), Mr Okpozo, Delta North APC leader, Mr Enuha, and other chieftains sacked the Jones Erue-led State executive and constituted a parallel leadership to run the party.
The Okpozo-Enuha faction of the party is accusing the Erue faction of high-headedness, greediness and the hijack of the party by its 2015 governorship candidate in Delta state, Emerhor O’tega.
