There was pandemonium at the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Secretariat following heavy shooting by gunmen who operated along the ever busy Enugu-Abakaliki Express Road.
Party faithful had assembled at the party Secretariat located along the express road awaiting the arrival of materials for distribution when the heavy shooting broke out.
The shooting which caused panic saw many of the party faithful running in different directions as the Gunmen were seen shooting from the outside of the party Secretariat.
News, who were also at the party Secretariat to monitor the distribution of the materials, were also trapped inside the party Secretariat.
It took the quick intervention of security operatives who accompanied some political office holders to the party office to repel the attackers.
As at the time the attack was repelled, it was not yet certain the motive and intent of the gunmen but there was no casualty.
The three- man delegate congress as at 4pm was yet to commence following the delay in the arrival of the materials.
