The Sharks Stadium in Port Harcourt, venue of the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party on Wednesday has been sealed off by the Nigerian Police.
According to reports, policemen stormed the venue of the convention around 4am on Wednesday.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Donald Awunah, disclosed this during a programme on Channels Television, ‘Sunrise Daily’.
Awunah said due to the tension surrounding the convention, 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 you do? You 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.”
