The Sharks Stadium, venue of the Peoples Democratic Party convention, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State was on Wednesday morning sealed off by police, Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Nnamdi Omoni confirms.
“Yes, we have (sealed off) the place,” Mr. Omoni said. “We are just obeying the court instruction.”
Mr Omoni however claimed ignorance of the two conflicting court judgments on the party convention.
A Court in Abuja had ordered the suspension of the convention, barring police and electoral officials from the event, while another Federal High Court in Port Harcourt had earlier ordered the PDP to go ahead with the convention.
NAN reports that security operatives have denied delegates, journalists entry into the stadium.
