Breaking News: PDP National Convention Venue in Port Harcourt Has Be Seal Off By Police

The Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr. Donald Awunah disclosed this during a programme on Channels Television titled, ‘Sunrise Daily’.


Awunah said the primary responsibility of the police was to protect life and prevent crisis. He added that due to the tension surrounding the convention and the conflicting court rulings, the police thought it best to seal off the venue.

He said, “The warring parties need to follow due process to end their crisis through the courts and as a law enforcement agency what do is to ensure that there is a superior court order. It is not about taking sides.

“If in the next one hour or two, we get another court order, we will take action. We are there for every Nigerian but when you are the first responder, you have to take action, you have to be proactive.”
