He said, “Nobody was killed but some people were wounded and cars vandalised.

“I was told that the gunmen chased away our members and shot indiscriminately, causing panic. Chairs and canopies were destroyed, cars of members packed were also vandalised.”

In the meantime, attempts to reach the state police command’s spokesperson, Daniel Ndukwe, for comment on the incident were fruitless since Ndukwe apparently was unable to answer calls or text messages.

Meanwhile, the Labour Party (LP) has refuted rumors that Peter Obi, a contender for president, was looking for foreign finance for his campaigns.

According to Anaedoonline.ng, several Nigerians have criticized Peter Obi for visiting other nations to meet Nigerians living abroad and for the LP’s creation of a contentious committee.

Abayomi Oluwafemi, the national publicity secretary of the Labour Party, clarified the situation in a phone interview with Newsmen on Saturday. She referred to the claims that the party was also looking for foreign funding for its operations as part of the pranks of political rivals who were scared off by the party’s rising profile and its presidential candidate.
