The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the seal-off of the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC), TheNigerian News has learnt.
The IGP gave the order through the FCT Commissioner of Police to the APC chief security officer on Tuesday morning.
Several security personnel, including the special forces of the Department of State Services (DSS), had arrived the secretariat in the early hours, parading and stopping members of the National Working Committee (NWC) loyal to the suspended National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, from gaining access into the complex.
According to a party source, the IGP has also scheduled a meeting with the NWC members.
The source also explained that the meeting would center on the swearing-in of Mr. Worgu Boms as the replacement for Chief Victor Giadom as National Deputy Secretary, by South South National Vice Chairman, Hilliard Eta.
Since last week, the Appellate Court sitting in Abuja upheld the suspension of the APC National Chairman, Comrade Oshiomhole, the party has been enmeshed in a crisis of leadership.

However, the National Vice Chairman South South, Hilliard Eta, is holding brief of the Acting National Chairman for Senator Ajimobi.
