Men of the Nigerian Police have confined governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the Rivers State Government House following an order by the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotun, who allegedly asked his men to lockdown the premises.
The governors had gathered to hold an emergency meeting following the stoppage of the PDP National Convention after armed police men barricaded the venue in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Pictures made available to The WHISTLER show how armoured personnel carrier (APC) of the Nigerian police rammed into vehicle of the Rivers State Government parked outside premises the State House.
Meanwhile, the Director of Online Strategy of the PDP, Nwazuruahu Shield, who reacted to the lockdown, has urged President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to leave them alone, adding that Nigeria’s democracy is in danger.
“The fact is democracy is in danger, mosco road is sealed, government house is sealed, our convention ground is sealed, is it a wrong thing to have an opposition party in Nigeria? As I speak to you, Port Harcourt is under lock and key. Buhari and APC should leave us alone.
“The police are carrying out this order despite an earlier order mandating them to monitor this convention. I simply don’t understand,” said Nwazuruahu Shield.
