The hoodlums said to number over 20 and armed with dangerous weapons, were said to have stormed the party office at about 1:00a.m., and when they could not gain access into the building resorted to cutting the flag poles and destroying the giant flex billboard.

“The flags were nowhere to be found while the giant flex billboard bearing the images of our state party leader, Chief Ikechi Emenike, and the national leader, President Muhammadu Buhari were pulled down and torn to shreds.

He said that on inquiry the security man guarding the facility narrated how the hoodlums armed with knives, iron rods, and cudgels came in the wee hours and made attempts to break into the building without success before they started their destructive rampage outside.

“From his hiding place on the second floor, the security man said that he heard the hoodlums shouting threats that they will burn down the APC secretariat the next time they will come,” 

Confirming and speaking on the incident, the state organizing secretary of Abia APC, Mr. Obinna Atuonwa, said that the motive for the attack could the outcome of the party congress which was swept by the loyalists of Chief Ikechi Emenike.

“We have been receiving threats since our congress was recognized by the national leadership of our great party,” he said, adding, “now that the threats have started manifesting in vandalism, the Abia APC leadership will, without delay, petition the police and ask for protection before things get out of hand.”
