The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has ordered a rerun of the primary elections for Senate and House of Representatives aspirants throughout Lagos State.

The elections, which were initially held on Thursday were marred by violence and massive rigging.

Suspected thugs attacked APC faithful in voting centres in Oshodi/ Isolo , Kosofe  and several other local council areas.

In these areas, thugs were moving from one polling unit to the other brandishing machetes; attacking those perceived to be opponents and chasing them out of the voting centres.
