Rivers APC campaign director found dead with bullet shots
The remains of All Progressives Congress Campaign (APC) coordinator in Ahoada-West Local Government Area of Rivers State, Chisom Lennard, has been found hours after he was abducted.
Late Lennard’s body was found in a pool of blood and riddled with bullets along the Ibueahi-Ubeta road in Ahoada West LGA of the state late Saturday.
The state APC publicity secretary, Darlington Nwauju, confirmed the incident to newsmen, saying “He was abducted from his polling unit during the voting process and taken away.
“Nobody knew where they took him to. It was later yesterday evening (Saturday) that his body was discovered. He was the APC LGA caretaker chairman and a PhD student at the Rivers State University.”
Lennard was reportedly kidnapped by the gunmen dressed in police uniform while voting during the governorship and state House of Assembly elections at Ibagwa polling unit 2, Ward 10 in Ahoada West LGA.
The APC chieftain, it was gathered, had tried to stop the gunmen from snatching election materials when he was whisked away by uniformed men initially thought to be security operatives.
The late APC chieftain was an estate surveyor and a former board member of the Greater Port Harcourt City Development Authority during the tenure of Rotimi Amaechi.
The state police command has not issues any statement on the matter.
