The clamp down on opposition parties took another dimension in Enugu on Saturday as armed men suspected to be Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) thugs hijacked and burnt the All Progressives Congress, APC, membership register.
The incident took place at Udi, the country home of Governor Sullivan Chime of the state.
A source told Daily Post that collation of materials from the on-going APC membership registration exercise was ongoing at the Udi collation centre at Ninth Mile Corner when about 15 armed thugs barged into the place and disrupted the exercise.
APC officials who narrowly escaped from the centre at IFEPET Garden Ninth Mile, alleged that the thugs were led by the factional chairman of PDP in Udi, Isaac Nwoye.
The thugs reportedly dumped the register in a nearby bush, soaked it with petrol and set it on fire.
