Police mount surveillance at APC Secretariat
Armed policemen on Monday mounted surveillance at the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja.
Secretary of the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Senator John Akpanudoedehe, said the presence of the Policemen was a proactive measure for protection based on a security report.
As early as 9 am on Monday, not less than ten Hilux pickup patrol vans fully loaded with armed policemen were strategically positioned along Blantyre street where the party Secretariat is located.
Four of the vans of the police were positioned around the main gate to the Secretariat complex while six others were stationed at the three major entrances to the street.
Another set of six non-branded vehicles were said to be on surveillance around the secretariat and its environs.
The car park outside the party Secretariat was also condoned off. Nobody was allowed to park outside the Secretariat.
But party staff, members, Journalists, and visitors were allowed entrance to the Secretariat complex while members of the public went about their business unmolested.
Reacting to the development, Akpanudoedehe said policemen were there at the instance of the party.
He maintained the party took a proactive measure following an undisclosed security report.
