APC secretariat bombed again in Rivers State, Nigeria

The All Progressives Congress secretariat in Ngor community, in Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State, was yesterday bombed by some unknown political thugs. The incident occurred in the early hours of yesterday.

According to a source, the building, which was serving as APC sec­retariat went up in flames, after it was attacked with a dynamite. The attack was said to have created panic in the area, as residents were seen fleeing the community.

The attack was said to be similar to the one carried out on APC secretariat at Aba-Ama in Okrika Local Government Area of the state at about 3.14am, last Sunday, where the ground floor of the three-storey building, where the party has its office, was attacked with explosives.

When contacted to comment on the incident, the Chairman of APC in Andoni Local Government Area, Mr. Amos Gogo Amos, said the fire, caused by the impact of the explosives, was still on at the time he was speaking with reporters.

“The building has been completely razed by the inferno. We are calling on the government, to come to our aid, as we are no longer safe in the community. Anything can happen in the night. As we speak, fire is still raging in the building”.

Also, the Caretaker Committee Chairman of Andoni Local Government Area, Ikwut Emmanuel, told journalists how he received a distress call at about 3am, and the caller informed him that APC secretariat was on fire.

“I received a call around 3.am today, that the APC secretariat at Ngor, ward 1, our party local government headquarters, was on fire. The entire building was razed. I am calling on the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) and the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Dam Bature, to investi­gate the matter,” he said.

When contacted, the Rivers State Command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ahmad Mohammadu, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), confirmed the incident. He, however, said that the information at his disposal, at the time of filing the report was sketchy.

“The information within our reach is sketchy. However, I can inform you that the police have begun investigation into the matter,” he said
