The APC dragged the PDP’s national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus into the matter.
“Also, killed was his elder brother and another victim that is believed to be his cousin. It’s instructive to note that PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus is from Andoni LGA in Rivers State.
“Ignatius, an ex-official member of APC Rivers State Executive committee, was also shot to death in Ajakaja, same Andoni LGA of Prince Secondus.”
