The Secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State has been sealed by the State Police Command on Wednesday.
It was learned that there was a protest at the secretariat earlier in the day against the chairman of the caretaker committee, Ndubuisi Nwobu, for alleged selfish and pecuniary interests.
Ndubuisi Durkins, Assistant Legal Adviser of the party, who led the protest, had claimed that some of their members were injured.
Haruna Mohammed, the command Police Public Relations Officer, said the sealing of the secretariat was to avert a further breakdown of law and order.
Mohammed added that the state had been peaceful over time and the police would not allow anybody to jeopardise the relative peaceful situation prevalent in the state under whatever cover.
“The police would take control of the area until when normalcy returns,” he said.
The PPRO denied the allegation that some of the protesters and their supporters were brutalised by thugs and some policemen.
