The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State has reportedly sacked the Chairman of its Caretaker Committee, Alhaji Tunde Balogun.

The Lead Convener of Lagos4Lagos, Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran better known as Jandor, after the council elections, had accused Balogun of corruption in his handling of the party primaries, asking him to resign.

According to reports, Balogun on Monday started moving his personal belongings from the APC office situated at Acme Road in the Ikeja area of the state.
