Crisis in the Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress worsened on Monday as juju was placed at the entrance of the party’s secretariat along the Oyemekun Road in Akure.
The juju discouraged people from entering the complex.
Workers at the secretariat, who arrived as early as 8am, were shocked to see palm fronds and charms on the locked gates of the secretariat.
Palm fronds and charms were also seen on the fence of the secretariat.
This situation sent panic into the workers and people in the area.
Traditionally, the placing of palm fronds and charms at the entrance of a building means that nobody should enter the building. Anyone that enters into such a building does so at great risk to their lives.
It was gathered that immediately the workers saw the charms, they raised the alarm and informed the party’s leaders.
Some of the party’s leaders informed were not around but those that were around could not do anything about it.
It was also gathered that the development was not unconnected with the crisis rocking the state chapter of the party in recent time.
The crisis resulted in two-thirds of the members of State Executive Committee of the party sacking the state chairman, Mr. Isaac Kekemeke, from office.
The discovery of the charms was later reported at a police station in Akure, after which some officers and men of the Ondo State Police Command were deployed in the scene.
