Soldiers, riot policemen and other security agencies confronted the leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during their march to the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja on November 28, 2013, Thursday.

After a strategic meeting in the APC’s new secretariat in Wuse 2, the Federal Capital Territory, which lasted about three hours, the party leaders took to the streets and embarked on a procession to INEC’s office in Maitama District.

The protesters however met a stiff resistance from stern-looking security operatives comprising the police, soldiers, SSS and Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps.
