Barely five days after the All Progressives Congress secretariat in Okrika Local Government Area of Rivers State was bombed, another secretariat belonging to the party was attacked at Ngo community in Andoni Local Government Area of the state on Friday.
The incident, which occurred at about 3.14am, destroyed the building as residents, who were jolted by the deafening sound of the explosion, took to their heels.
The Ward 1 Chairman of APC in the area, Mr. Amos Gogo Amos, said the attack on the secretariat in Andoni was similar to that of Sunday’s incident in Okrika Local Government Area.
Amos said, “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. The building was badly damaged.”
Also speaking on the incident, the Caretaker Committee Chairman of Andoni Local Government Area, Mr. Ikwut Emmanuel, said he received a distress call that the secretariat had been attacked by some unknown persons.
Emmanuel, however, appealed to the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Dan Bature, to investigate the matter and bring the culprits to book.
The police spokesperson, Mr. Ahmad Mohammad, confirmed the incident, but said details were still sketchy.
