The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta state has expelled controversial Senator Ovie Omo-Agege due to unabated anti-party activities.
A statement issued and signed by the State Legal Adviser, Dennis Nwanowai disclosed that the expulsion of the Senator was reached Wednesday at an emergency meeting of the State Working Committee (SWC) of the APC led by Chief Cyril Abeye Ogodo.
The statement partly reads as follows:
“The latest of such activities relates to the hijack of primaries panel members and materials sent from the national to conduct primaries in the state and deploying same to conduct unauthorised parallel primaries.
“The manipulation and tampering of delegates lists and the use of thugs to harass and deprive authentic delegates from access to primaries venues; all that in conjunction with Prophet Jones Erue and others who have earlier been expelled from our party.
“The expulsion of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege is with immediate effect.
“The SWC also resolved to petition the Security services including the Police and DSS to arrest and prosecute Senator Omo-Agege, Prophet Jones Erue and others for impersonation and other actions calculated to breach public peace.”
