The State congress of the Delta state All Progressives Congress (APC) approved by the National Working Committee (NWC) is currently underway at the Federal College of Education (Technical), Asaba, the state capital.
The NWC had postponed the congress earlier slated for Saturday, May 19, owing to alleged inducement of some members of the committee charged with the conduct of the exercise.
Punch reports that the congress is being attended by delegates from the 25 local government areas of the state.
NAIJ.com previously reported that Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, representing Delta state central senatorial district, issued a warning to those behind the APC congress attack in Delta state on Saturday, May 5, urging them to refrain from violence in a bid to seek political power.
The police command in Delta state confirmed that a chairmanship candidate, Jeremiah Oghoveta, believed to be a supporter Omo-Agege, died in the APC ward congresses in Ughelli South local government area of the state.
The command’s spokesperson, Andrew Aniamaka, said Oghoveta was stabbed to death during the exercise at Jeremi Ward 3, Okwagbe.
