Explosion Rocks APC Office In Rivers, 3 Members Suffer Machete Cuts

An explosion said to have been caused by a dynamite destroyed the All Progressives Congress office in Okrika Local Government Area of Rivers State, on Sunday.
Christian Asifamak, APC Chairman in Okrika Local Government Area, told journalists an unknown person threw the dynamite which destroyed the office located on the ground floor of a three-storey building. The incident, he said occured at 3. 14 a.m.
Asifamak said “The All Progressives Congress in Okrika views this latest attack as a deliberate provocation by our opponents, the People’s Democratic Party to draw the APC into a battle that would destabilize our beloved local government area. This is unfortunate and the APC in Okrika would not allow Okrika to become a hotbed of crises as the PDP would wish.”
He alleged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, were behind the attack, saying they have become desperate because the Okirika people have rejected them.
“We however wish to warn our brothers in the PDP to remember that the land of Okrika has been known to defend itself and its people against aggression and that any Okrika person who brings crisis to the land answers for it,” he stated.
Beside, three members of the party were cut by machetes while preparing for a political rally in Rumueme, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
The injured are being treated the Kesley Harrison Hospital in Port Harcourt.
