One Shot Dead At APC Secretariat In Rivers State, Others Injured

At least one person was shot dead and many injured after pandemonium broke out today at the Rivers State Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress, along Moscow Road in Port Harcourt. The chaos happened after protestors went violent and destroyed properties at the secretariat.

It was gathered that armed policemen and other security operatives fired live bullets as they were mobilized to the area after some protesters became violent and vandalized the APC office.

Earlier, the leadership of the All Progressive Congress in Rivers State, had denied claims by a section of the party that materials for the local government congresses have been hijacked.

The APC spokesman said the delegation from Abuja had their flight delayed, hence the exercise was rescheduled for later in the day.

However, the protesters, who were led by the State Deputy Chairman APC, Peter Odike, alleged that, “Some of their intending delegates had been deliberately deprived of the forms to participate in the congresses tomorrow.”

The APC protesters complained that the State Chairman and other officials were not at the secretariat to attend to them, less than twenty-four hours to the congresses.
