According to a report by Punch Metro, some hoodlums were arrested at the gate of the venue of the Ekiti APC primary rerun for attempting to force themselves into the venue and for aggressively confronting policemen who manned the gates.
One of the suspected hoodlums, who accused the policemen of bias after he was denied access into the venue because he did not have the necessary requirements, had on him charm wrapped in a red piece of cloth.
A team of suspected hoodlums comprising of four men was also arrested and handed over to Criminal Investigation Department present at the venue.
The men claimed to be delegates from various wards but they did not possess any of the documents required to ease their entry to the main venue from the gate. The sum of N158,000 was found on them.
Earlier, two men were separately arrested for also attempting to gain entrance into the venue by force.
