Some delegates at the ongoing national convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) engaged themselves in a fist fight.
The delegates threw brooms and the party’s symbol at each other.
Trouble started among Imo State delegates before spreading to the Delta State delegates.
According  reports, the clash between delegates from Imo was soon brought under control by security officials after some time but that among Delta delegates was more intense.
Chairs were said to have been thrown with several people sustaining injuries.
The fracas occurred despite the heavy security presence at the venue of the convention which has President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and others.
The fight actually broke out just as President Buhari made his speech before Chairman of the convention committee Abubakar Badaru, governor of Jigawa state, took the stand to declared Adams Oshiomhole as the new unopposed chairman of the ruling party.
