Abuja - Supporters of the embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff on Wednesday clashed with supporters of the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi,  reports NewsDay.

The supporters of the two party leaders, who were mainly youths, stormed the Wadata Plaza of the opposition party in mini buses chanting various songs.

First, anti-Ali Modu Sheriff protesters besieged the secretariat demanding that Sheriff should leave the party alone.

They carried placards with the inscriptions “Sheriff must go”, “Sheriff leave our party alone” and “Agent of APC stop killing our party”.

Just as the anti-Sheriff protesters retreated to have a rest, the anti-Ahmed Makarfi demonstrators started chanting songs in support of Sheriff, reports Information Nigeria.

Some of them wore T-shirts embossed with Sheriff’s portrait, while also carrying placards saying “Sheriff MUST stay” and “Sheriff is our man”.

The presence of security operatives prevented the clash from degenerating into a serious clash.
