Thugs storm major Polling units shooting, snatching ballots in Rivers Bye election

Suspected thugs from the People Democratic Party camp have stormed the polling unit in in Ward 18, Units 7, 8 and 9, Port Harcourt City, in the ongoing House of Assembly bye-election for the Port Harcourt Constituency 3 seat.

They are said to have been shooting periodically as they snatched ballot boxes in the affected polling units.

While the Peoples Democratic Party is accusing the All Progressives Congress of using the Special Anti-Robbery Squad to unleash terror and create fear in the minds of voters, the APC insisted that the PDP engaged militants to disrupt the exercise.

The bye-election became necessary when the former occupier of the seat, Victor Ihunwo, left to contest the local government election before the seat was declared vacant.
