    After evacuating all staff in the four-story building, protesters locked up the main gate with a new padlock and handed over the key to the Board of Trustees chairman, Walid Jibrin, for safe keeping.


    The leadership crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) took a new turn today as a group of youths under the aegis of the Amalgamation of PDP Youth loyal to Ahmed Markafi, the chairman of the National Caretaker Committee, besieged the Wadata Plaza, broke into the premises, and ordered all staff out of the building.


    The placard-carrying protesters asked the policemen drafted to the secretariat to steer clear of the melee and not to dare them.



    Speaking on behalf of the group was Adeyemi Olusegun, who said that he has assumed the position of the chairman of the party and therefore asked both Mr. Markafi and National Chairman Ali Modu Sheriff to stay away from the secretariat.


    After evacuating all staff in the four-story building, protesters locked up the main gate with a new padlock and handed over the key to the Board of Trustees chairman, Walid Jibrin, for safe keeping.


    According to a SaharaReporters correspondent, the secretariat has been deserted and remains under lock at the time of reporting.


    The protesters promised to return tomorrow and vowed not to allow Ali Modu Sherrif to enter the office. The controversial chairman was not in the office when the drama was going on.
