Hoodlums Target Abia APC Secretariat
Over 20 hoodlums yesterday threatened to burn down the Abia State secretariat of the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) at No. 50 Uyo Street,
The hoodlums, armed with dangerous weapons which included machetes, iron rods and clubs handed down the threat after tearing-off President Muhammadu Buhari’s picture from a giant bill board.Speaking to newsmen at the secretariat yesterday, the administrative officer, Mr. Stanley Chidi, said the hoodlums also cut-down 10 flag poles and went away with them.
He said the night security man told him on arrival in the morning that the hoodlums arrived at about 1am and started shouting on top of their voices as they went about destroying the items.Reacting to the development, the state organizing secretary of the party, Deacon Obinna Atuonwu, expressed shock over the attack, adding that they had petitioned the inspector general of police over the matter.
“Having taken account of the unfortunate incident, we want security agencies to provide adequate security for the secretariat to avert the threat. It is dangerous to take it lightly,” he added.The attack may be a continuation of the internal wrangling over the control of the structure of the party which played out very prominently during its recently concluded congresses. headtopics.comRead more: LEADERSHIP Newspaper »
