Senior members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State were said to have resorted to physical combat after a disagreement broke out during a recent meeting which was held in the home of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.
The fight occurred between the Chairman of the APC from Yola North, Alhaji Salihu Ahmed and the Chief of Staff to Governor Muhammadu Jibrilla, Abdulrahman Abba Jimeta over the weekend, Daily Trust reports.
The trouble was said to have started when Jimeta refused to recognize Ahmed as the rightful chairman of Yola North.
The argument led to a verbal fight which eventually deteriorated to a brawl which saw Jimeta taking off a piece of clothing to improve his chance of victory.
The duo were eventually separated by other chieftains of the party who were present at the meeting.
