Some youths in the All Progressive Congress (APC) on Sunday nailed and burned a coffin bearing the name and picture of former governor of Osun state, Rauf Aregbesola, in the Alimosho area of Lagos.

A viral video on Social media shows the youths singing a dirge for the Minister of Interior, who has fallen out with his political god-father and former governor of Lagos, Bola Tinubu.

This is coming hours after Aregbesola failed in his bid to install his former Secretary to the state government, Moshood Adeoti, as the governorship candidate of the party in Osun state.
