Politics APC convention: Police tighten security in Abuja- Punch



There was tight security in Abuja on Friday for the national convention of the All Progressives Congress taking place at the Eagle Square on Saturday.

Scores of policemen including the anti-bomb squad, riot policemen, and the dog unit were deployed in and around the venue of the convention to provide protection for the thousands of party faithful and delegates participating in the event.

Policemen and officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps used heavy duty trucks to block off part of Shehu Shagari Way as well as other junctions along the road, causing a serious traffic snarl.

Thousands of APC members had been streaming in to the FCT since Thursday evening while those from nearby states came in on Friday in buses and private cars.
