PDP Crisis: Police Seal Off Party’s National Secretariat

Following Saturday’s parallel national convention that saw the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, divided, the Nigerian Police have reportedly sealed off the Wadata Plaza national secretariat of the party in Abuja.

Although informed sources told SIGNAL police vehicles sighted around the PDP secretariat have always been stationed there, reports indicate that the police have cordoned off one of the traffic lanes leading into the complex, while those who had been on ground providing security were all replaced.

The PDP is currently enmeshed in a leadership crisis which culminated in two parallel conventions in Abuja and Port Harcourt on Saturday. The conventions produced three sets of leaders.

Online newspaper The Trent broke the news on Sunday.

The coordinator of the PDP governors’ forum, Osaro Onaiwu, who visited the secretariat on Sunday, told journalists, that the police might have received information that the Modu Sheriff faction intended to hold a meeting there.
