The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denounced reported cases of violence witnessed in the party's state congresses which held last Saturday across the country.

The state congresses were hosted to elect delegates for the upcoming non-elective national convention.

In a statement signed by its National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, the APC noted that most of the state congresses were peaceful and conducted in compliance with guidelines and directives given by the Party to the appointed congress committees.




It however said: "the APC finds cases of violence in Rivers and Kaduna States quite disturbing.

"The Party equally regrets and condemns the attack on the National Union of Journalist (NUJ) Secretariat in Kaduna which resulted in injuries to two journalists.

"The Party will investigate the reported cases and take necessary action in line with the Party's constitution against whoever is found culpable.

"The Party congratulates and commends all the states whose exercise went peacefully. Where grievances have been reported, the Party shall examine such cases and address them accordingly."
