Imo state Deputy governor, Prince Eze Madumere, yesterday, escaped attack by thugs at the All Progress Congress, APC, state secretariat.
This was as Governor Rochas okorocha’s son-in-law, Mr Uche Nwosu, said that there was a swap of congress committee that suppose to conduct ward congresses in the state.
Among those who escaped the attack were Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu, former Secretary to the state government, Mr Jude Ejiogu and others.
Vanguard was told that Madumere and others were at the APC, state Secretariat, as part of the preparation for the party’s congress.
But with the intervention of the security agencies, a peaceful atmosphere was restored. At the time of filling this report, members of the All Progress Congress, APC, in the state, were still at the Imo police Command headquarters, trying to resolve the alleged swap of Congress committee.
It was claimed that the congress committee that was suppose to conduct congress in Imo state, were moved to Anambra state. As discussions were still on, Vanguard was told that some groups in Ngor Okpala local government area as well as Ehime Mbano local government said to be loyal to the present government held their own congresses. Nwosu who briefly spoke at the Police command said: We are trying to sought out some issues. There was a swap. The people that suppose to conduct the congress in Imo were moved to Anambra and the Anambra people moved to Imo. And we want them to properly hand over.”
