The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, campaign rally in Anambra State was a bloody affair on Friday, as 3 people laid dead.
This was also confirmed by James Eze, Special Senior Assistant to the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano.
Sources alleged that a combined team of Police and Soldiers guarding the APC Governorship candidate, Tony Nwoye, and other visiting Governors in Anambra, opened fire on protesters.
According to an eyewitness, trouble started when youths in the area tried blocking the road to show their displeasure over the killings of IPOB members in Abia State.
The eyewitness also stated that at least 3 people have been confirmed dead and several others wounded.
It was also learnt that the youths stormed the area after the APC campaign team had left, and started burning tyres, chanting “no election in Anambra State”.
Recall, that Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Minister Of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, were at the campaign rally.
