Bayelsa guber: PDP chairman battered by APC thugs over poll materials
The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Brass local government area of Bayelsa State, Bara Daniel, was on Thursday, battered by APC members over misunderstanding where the election materials should be kept ahead of Saturday’s governorship election.
This medium gathered that problem started when officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were offloading the election materials.
It was alleged that the PDP chairman was injured in the head by the supporters of the APC, led by the former council chairman, Victor Isaiah.
Though, Isaiah denied any involvement in the attack. He said that he saved the day because of the alleged unruly behaviour of Mr Daniel who was intimidating APC supporters over how to secure the election materials.
“I was there actually to monitor the process of the materials offloading but the PDP chairman kept making derogatory statements which unsettled some people but I was able to calm the situation,” Isaiah said.
However, normalcy was restored by some military operatives who intervened during the face-off.
