There was heavy pandemonium at the All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat in Acme, Lagos, yesterday even as people suffered different shades of injuries and properties vandalized in the process. Contrary to the runout making the rounds, the news reaching us has it that Lagos state APC woman leader, Hon. Jumoke Okoya-Thomas and Chief Mrs Kemi Nelson South West APC Women Leader, were said to be at the centre of the controversy. An independent source who craved anonymity divulged to us that the South West APC Women Leader, Mrs. Kemi Nelson was at the Secretariat to attend to some exigencies when Hon. Jumoke Okoya-Thomas entered the famous secretariat. As soon as she (Okoya-Thomas got to the party Secretariat, her Personal Assistant, a lady Alhaja Biodun was said to have accost the P.A of Kemi Nelson alleging that she was unruly to her principal when they met at the Epe Home of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for the ileya celebration. She had not finished when Tokunbo Alli-Balogun descended on her beating her mercilessly with the help of some other loyalists of Chief Mr. Kemi NelsonIt. It was at this point that those loyal to Jumoke Okoya-Thomas threw caution to the wind. The loyalists who were now out of control after seeing the injuries inflicted on Alhaja Biodun were said to have instantly made their ways into the office Mrs. Kemi Nelson was and attacked everybody, while Mrs. Kemi Nelson’s aide, Ayo Alli- Balogun who started the trouble had fled the secretariat . Mrs. Kemi Nelson was said to have narrowly escaped. Properties Inter stingily, many people have been wondering what could be the cause of the in-fighting between the women leaders of the party that got to a crescendo yesterday. It was gathered that Kemi Nelson’s hold on power may be the primary cause because she was appointed the Lagos Women Leader before Jumoke Okoya.Thomas. And it was time to take over the southwest and leave the Lagos office, she held on to it by even calling herself Lagos Women Leader Emeritus; a position that is not recognized by the party constitution. This is part of the reason the two big ladies are up for each-other’s jugulars. However, another source divulge that it could have been the once cordial relationship that existed between the late Molade Okoya.Thomas and Kemi Nelson which the daughter didn’t approve as at that time. Though, no one is alleging a love affair but it was well known that a strong bond existed between Kemi and the late Okoya Thomas which Jumoke disapproved bitterly. It was since then, we are told they’ve been acting like cat and mouse.
