Social sharing

The drama within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State appears to be taking a new dimension.

The latest is the sealing of a filling station in Port Harcourt reportedly owned by a member of the House of Representatives, Chinyere Igwe.

Igwe is an ally of former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Austin Opara, who is a staunch supporter of the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

Also a hotel said to be owned by Ikenda Chinda, a relative to Austin Opara, has also been sealed off.

Similarly, a lounge belonging to Ogbonda Jones, who is also an ally of Opara, has also been sealed up by the police.

No reason was given for the action of police operatives.

But Igwe, while reacting to the development on Friday, said the action of security agencies on his filling station is “politically motivated”.

The latest development is coming two weeks after Governor Nyesom Wike had threatened to seal off hotels and relaxation centers who let out their facilities for political meeting of those he accused of plotting to destabilize the state.

While Rivers State Police Command was yet to speak on the incident, there are indications that the police operatives that carried out the action came from the Rivers State Government House.
