Youths break PDP Chairman’s Head over Zoning (PHOTOS)

Some Youths descended heavily on the Chapter Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Obot Essien, during a function in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state capital.

According to reports, the attack occurred after the Chapter chairman mentioned that the House of Assembly seat was zoned to North -Central and the youths allegedly resorted to violence to protest the claim.

The youths who threw stones and broken bottles to send people scampering also shot into the air and chased all the elders who were in the function.

Mr. Obot Essien who was left in the pool of his blood sustained injuries on his head, with his nose cut off, and he was rushed to a nearby Hospital for medical attention.

Meanwhile, the state PDP chairman has reacted to the attack.

Read the press statement below;

The State Chairman of the party, Obong Paul Ekpo has expressed great displeasure over the assault on the chapter chairman of Uruan Mr. Obot Essien, which we are reliably informed happened at a birthday party last night.

While we are still awaiting a full briefing as to the immediate and remote causes of that uncivilized action, we warn all party officials, aspirants, and their supporters to conduct all activities with decorum, conscious of the fact that their actions and or inactions can negatively affect the image of the party.

Henceforth, any act(s) of violence by aspirants or their supporters will receive heavy punitive measures.
