The campaign manager of Dakuku Peterside organization in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni(ONELGA) local Government, Austin Ahiamadu, said the attack on the party’s office was intended to disrupt the APC campaign rally.

Throughout the night there were sporadic shootings with gunmen attacking key loyalists of our party.

“Other parties have organized campaigns in ONELGA. APC members have never attacked them.The action is cowardly and action meant to intimidate APC.”, Ahiamadu said.
