Destiny Enabulele, the Chairman of the Ovia South-West Local Government Area, was on Monday beaten up by security guards at the reception venue for the 80th birthday of a former chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie Oyegun.
Enabulele had approached the entrance of the venue in company with his aides, and was asked to produce his invitation card, but was unable to do so.
Attempts by his aides to introduce him were rebuffed by the guards who insisted on seeing the access card.
Instead of turning back, Enabulele insisted on having his way, which angered the guards.
He was immediately grabbed by the neck and thrown out.
The situation almost turned into a fight as both Enabulele and his aides took on the security guards who were pushing the duo out of the premises.
It took the intervention of the protocol who knew Enabulele before the situation was brought under control and he was allowed into the reception venue while his aides were locked outside.
