supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party, protesting the outcome of the governorship election in Imo State, went on the rampage in Owerri, the state capital, on Monday.
The PDP supporters, who carried placards, demanding that Governor Rochas Okorocha should vacate Government House for their candidate, Emeka Ihedioha, stopped and harassed motorists on Okigwe Road.
The crowd of protesters, who were joined by miscreants, also beat up some road users, including commercial tricycle operators who refused to support their cause.
The Police arrived the scene of the protest when it appeared to be getting out of hand and fired tear gas to disperse the crowd.
Meanwhile, the Director of the Rochas Okorocha Campaign Organisation, Iheukwumere Alaribe, described the protest by the PDP supporters as a demonstration of their displeasure with the Imo State branch of the Independent National Electoral Commission for failing to deliver the governorship election to the party.
