PDP ABUJA PROTEST ENDS ABRUPTLY AS MEMBERS ESCAPE DEATH

The protest embarked upon, on Monday, in Abuja by the
leaders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party
against the judgement of the Supreme Court on the 2019
Imo State governorship election has ended abruptly at the
Eagle Square.
The Supreme Court had on January 14 nullified the victory
of Chief Emeka Ihedioha, who is the PDP Imo State 2019
governorship candidate.
The apex court had held that the candidate of the All
Progressives Congress, Chief Hope Uzodinma, is the duly
elected governor of the state and ordered that he should be
sworn in as the governor of the state.
Some of the PDP leaders at the protest included the PDP
National Chairman, Uche Secondus; the 2019 Vice-
President candidate, Peter Obi; and the Senate Minority
Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe.
Also present were members of the PDP National Working
Committee as well as the PDP Youth Leader, Ude Okoye.
The protesters, who had taken off from the PDP complex in
Maitama, Abuja popularly called the Legacy House, were en
route to the Supreme Court, but on getting to the Eagles
Square, they noticed that suspected members of the All
Progressives Congress had gathered at the Supreme Court
junction.
The leaders of the protest, to avoid clash or confrontation
with the suspected APC members, decided to stop the PDP
members from continuing with the protest to the Supreme
Court, which initially was supposed to be the terminal point
of the protest.
The protest did not also end without an accident. Some of
the PDP protesters escaped death by the whiskers.
The affected PDP protesters were in some vehicles, but
suddenly at the Transcorp Hilton junction, one of the
vehicles rammed into a truck also conveying some other
PDP protesters.
However, there were no injuries and no death recorded.
