… Wounds APC Orumba North Youth Leader, Mr Ejike Kanu.
Ajalli- Members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Orumba North Local Government Area were on Thursday, February 11, thrown into pandemonium as the party’s membership registration turned violent and bloody in the Local Government Area as Senator Andy Ubah’s Senior Aide and loyalist, Mr Chukwudi Kanu attack Members of Registration and Revalidation Committee for Orumba North Local Government with over 20 thugs over Registration Materials for the Local Government Area.
The APC Local Government Youth Leader in Orumba North and Member of Orumba North Supervisory Committee, Mr Ejike Kanu, was seriously beaten and wounded over his refusal to hand over the Registration Materials to Senator Andy Ubah’s faction in the Local Government.
In a report by an eye witness at the scene, violence erupted in Ajalli when Me Chukwudi Kanu led some thugs into the distribution centre in the presence of the State Caretaker Chairman Chief Basil Ejidike and National Registration Committee Members, who came to know why the materials are yet to get to pollings units, attacked Mr Ejike Kanu who has for the past two days refused to be compromised or allow the materials to be diverted. Mr Ejike Kanu insisted as a Member of the Committee, They were under instructions not to allow anybody take control of the Materials. This development did not go down well with Mr Chukwudi Kanu and his co-travellers.
According to the eye witness, The State Caretaker Chairman and Members of the National Registration Committee were not left out as the Thugs manhandled them in their bid to stop the thugs from destroying the Materials and attacking Mr Ejike Kanu further.
As at the time of this report, Mr Ejike Kanu has been rushed to an undisclosed hospital where he is receiving medical attention.
Our Source in Anambra had it in good authority that Registration Material for Oyi Local Government is still with the Registration committee because of fear of violence and attack, while that of Ogbaru Local Government is still at the Atani Police Station and has not been distributed at this time.
Onitsha North is yet to receive their materials as some thugs loyal to Mr William azuka and Mr Agha have sworn to disrupt the exercise if the materials are not handed over to them. The Leader of the Committee, Mr Tallest was seriously molested by these thugs on Wednesday night and out of fear, he abandoned the materials and has refused to come back for it.
