In Rivers State, an unidentified individual was reported dead during a demonstration by members of the All Progressives Congress.



After security officers shot repeatedly into the air to scare the protestors, the deceased, who was also a protester, was found lying face-down in front of the state party's secretariat on Woji road in the new Government Residential Area in Port Harcourt.

It's unclear whether the victim was killed by a bullet or died in a stampede as the throng fled for their lives.

A group of APC members loyal to Senator Magnus Abe, a former lawmaker from Rivers South-East Senatorial District, surrounded the party's secretariat to protest their apparent exclusion from the screening of hopefuls for the party's State House of Assembly.

The protesters also alleged that the state leadership of the party had hijacked the process of nominating delegates for the party’s primaries.

The party members were singing solidarity songs and displaying placards to express their grievances when some security men at the APC secretariat began shooting live bullets into the air to scare the protesters.

It was gathered that the action by the security agents caused both the protesters and journalists to run for safety.

The Rivers State Police Command has yet to comment on the matter.
