Suspected politcial thugs have attacked a meeting conveyed by the members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Isi-Uzo Local Government Area, Enugu State.
The attack happened in Isu Community, in Isi-Uzo Local Government as the members of the ruling party in the state gathered for a ward meeting.
The hoodlums forced the party faithfuls to scamper for safety but a Lexus jeep belonging to one of the Special Assistants to the Governor of Enugu State, Hon. Ikenne Ogbodo wasn’t spared by the thugs.
Eyewitness said the hoodlums attacked the ward meeting on Thursday afternoon at Isu community.
“We were at the meeting when thugs numbering over seven arrived at the venue and started destroying everything in the meeting venue,” one of the witnesses that gave his name as Mr. Goddy Agbo said.
“Everyone ran away, the SA to the Governor, Hon. Ikenna and others ran away leaving his car. The thugs began to destroy Hon. Ogbodo’s vehicle.”
Ten armed thugs suspected to have been imported for Saturday election had earlier been arrested at a hiedout in the area.
The Labour Party candidate Barr. Chijioke Edeoga had accused the PDP of mobilizing thugs to cause violence during the election.
The PDP had also denied the allegations accusing Labour of also plotting to unleash mayhem.
