Arsonists Reportedly Sets Ablaze APC Chieftain’s Residence In Benue



The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress in Benue State assumed dangerous dimensions as arsonists early hours of Wednesday set ablaze the residence of a chieftain of the party, Alhaji Abubakar Usman, aka Young Alhaji in Otukpo, Benue State.

The residence located at GRA, Otukpo was said to have been set on fire around 3:00 am by unknown arsonists.


The fire was said to have razed the front section of the building, which housed the security post and auxiliary buildings.

Alhaji Abubakar, a one-time senatorial candidate of Benue South had, a few days ago, displayed a mock coffin with a condolence register of APC at the front of his house.

This some party members in the area interpreted to mean the death of APC.


The display of the coffin and condolence register was to express his displeasure with the leadership of APC in the state over the choice of deputy governorship candidate he (Abubakar) and others opposed to.
