ACN condemns invasion of petition tribunal

By IWPR Nigeria

The Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, has condemned the last Saturday’s alleged invasion of the office of the Bayelsa state Election Petitions Tribunal.

Suspected political thugs, who carried out the act, were said to have taken away important documents.

National Youth Leader of ACN, Ebikibina Miriki, described the incident as shameful and called on security agents to arrest the perpetrators.

However, Bayelsa state police public relations officer, Eguavoen Emokpae, said he was not aware of the invasion of the election petition tribunal.
