Factional supporters in the crises rocking the Ogun State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have alleged that things took a frightening dimension this week Tuesday as two warring leaders for the State’s party structure, Senator Buruji Kashamu, and Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu, almost went physical in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, venue of the court-aborted PDP Convention.
We gathered that it took the intervention of some other party members present, and mostly supporters of the party’s Caretaker committee chairman, Sen. Ahmed Markafi, who razed to the scene, to douse tensions.
Both Kashamu and Adebutu have been at loggerheads over the control the structure of the PDP in Ogun State.
Ladi Adebutu, it was gathered, had aligned with the Makarfi-led exco while Buruji Kasamu is on the side of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.
Although, those who shared the story claimed that Senator Kashamu started the attack by physically assaulting Adebutu at the car park of the Presidential Hotel, we could not confirm it.
