Akeredolu, Abraham’s supporters clash at APC secretariat

ondo-state-apc-secretarit

Pandemonium broke out in Ondo State secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akure, when supporters of the governorship candidate of the party, Chief Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) and those of, Dr Olusegun Abraham engaged in a bloody free-for-all.
The melee, which led to temporary closure of the popular Oyemekun Road, where the secretariat was located led many supporters of the two APC stalwarts injured.
Also, properties worth millions of naira were destroyed by irate APC members at the state secretariat of the party during the clash.
It, however, took the intervention of soldiers and armed Policemen who shot sporadically into the air before warring members of the party could disperse.
Trouble started when some loyalists of Abraham, who met at the party’s secretariat, demanded the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun and also asked Akeredolu to step down.
Abraham’s loyalists, who had earlier staged a peaceful protest against Akeredolu’s victory with a march round major streets in Akure, also called for fresh primary election.
Armed with various placards, the protesters described the last governorship election of the party as a scam and called on the leadership of the party to redress the alleged anomaly.
However, the protesters were eventually attacked by people suspected to be loyalists of Akeredolu when they were about rounding off the protest at the party’s secretariat.
Various weapons including cutlasses, axes and charms were brandished while the violent clash lasted.
It was gathered that both Abraham and Akeredolu were later invited by the state Commissioner of Police, Mrs Hilda Harrison.
Addressing his supporters who later converged on his residence in Akure, Abraham said he would do everything within the law to reclaim his mandate, which he claimed was stolen and insisted that he won the September 3 governorship primary election of the party, having polled the highest number of lawful votes and he should, therefore, be declared the party’s standard bearer in the November poll in the state.
Abraham said over 10,000 of his supporters, drawn from all the 18 Local Government Areas of the state, mobilised themselves to defend their votes through the protest.
He insisted that the only thing that could bring peace back to the party was for his mandate to be restored.
Also, Abraham said he may be forced to take a legal action if the party fails to restore his mandate and alleged Akeredolu was mastermind of the attack against his loyalists who he claimed were on peaceful rally when they were attacked.

Church leader
A Zimbabwean church leader, Nyasha Light Nyatsungo is enmeshed in a sex scandal and might also be facing legal action, after his ex-girlfriend flooded social media with his nude photo.
It was gathered that the Nyatsungo allegedly sent a nude picture of his Cape Town based ex–side chick, Shingi Mavenge, to his other girlfriend only identified as Beula who later broadcasted it on social media.
According to H-Metro, in an apparent fit of rage, Mavenge posted a WhatsApp chat she had with Nyatsungo’s wife identified as Nyasha Nhahumbi as well as a group chat with some of her former lover’s concubines.
According to Mavenge, she has gotten information that Nyatsungo has at least 33 girlfriends and has ditched his wife of eight years.
She adds that Nyatsungo bedded a girl who was their neighbour as well.
Mavenge said that the church leader’s wife revealed that they even consulted their local pastor in Mutare who failed in his attempts to mend Nyatsungo’s ways.
According to H-Metro, Nyatsungo, a married father of two, has denied ever circulating the picture, labelling Mavenge as a bitter woman whom he just flirted with on Facebook and nothing more.
“This Nyasha guy must be stopped in his tracks. He is going to pay for all the damage that he has done to me. He was the only one who had that leaked picture and I am shocked why he would forward it to some other girl,” fumed Mavhenge who is working on taking legal action.
 
“I started dating this guy in 2015 and never knew he was married. He lied.”  fumed Mavenge yesterday.
“That guy is full of lies and at some point, we opened a group chat with his wife and some of his girlfriends. He normally targets single mothers” added Mavenge.
H-Metro was furnished with six other cellphone numbers of his girlfriend that include Fadzai, Mutsa, Essy, Juliana, Barbra among others. Mutsa confirmed she once had a relationship with Nyatsungo have since terminated it since she discovered he was married.
Mavenge confirmed they met once in Johannesburg when she had to fly from Cape Town to meet her man sometime in April.
“That night he didn’t even have money. I had to pay the R800 for the accommodation as he had no money. He wanted to have sex with me but I flatly refused. He even wanted it without protection and I said No. he looked terrible with clothes in a plastic shopping bag. I want to write a letter to Pastor Rex who is the head of (the church) in Harare so that this guy be stopped with his tricks and lies,” added Mavenge.
When contacted over the phone in Mutare Nyatsungo confirmed he knew Mavenge but never had a relationship with her.
“I know her and we once flirted on Facebook. We never had a relationship as she is alleging. I don’t know why she is bitter. I haven’t seen the nude pictures she is talking about but I heard about it from Beula. We live in a democratic country. She can go ahead and sue me if she feels her rights have been infringed upon. All the allegations she is making are false and I don’t know her motive in trying to tarnish my image,” said Nyatsungo.
He said he was still with his wife whose phone rang without response yesterday afternoon. Despite his denials, H-metro was furnished with pictures of Nyatsungo and Mavenge, the time they met in April.
