Coffin deposited at PDP headquarters Abuja

In a move reminiscent of Fela's coffin for head of state in 1977, angry PDP party members from Rivers State took over the party's secretariat in Abuja .

The protesters came to protest against former minister of state for education and the party's governorship candidate in Rivers State,  Nyesom Wike & Uche Secondus, the national vice chairman of the party. 



Wike is the chosen governorship candidate of Mrs. Patience Jonathan in Rivers State.

depositing  a mock coffin and chanting war songs , the protesters  erected a canopy at the entrance to the party's national secretariat there by blocking the way.


It took the intervention of police and security personnel several hours to clear off the protesters . Shots were fired and 5 protesters arrested eventually.
