Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Emma Elekwa, Awka

The po­lice in Anam­bra have closed the state sec­re­tariat of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP).

Daily Trust learnt that about twelve po­lice of­fi­cers from the state com­mand stormed the party’s sec­re­tariat, say­ing they were there un­der in­struc­tions “from above” to pre­vent break­down of law and or­der.

The party of­fi­cers, who were at the sec­re­tariat to hold their State Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee (SEC) meet­ing, were re­port­edly pre­vented from gain­ing ac­cess into the com­pound.

Brief­ing news­men at the en­trance of the sec­re­tariat, the state Le­gal Ad­viser of the party, Barr. Afam Ako­nanya, said they were taken aback “by the sur­prise mis­sion of the po­lice to the party sec­re­tariat.”

Ac­cord­ing to him, “Peace had re­turn to the party soon af­ter the Supreme Court judge­ment; no more fac­tions in the party and there­fore no rea­son for po­lice to cor­don off the place and pre­vent our party mem­bers from meet­ing.
