Thugs numbering over hundred on Tuesday invaded the Egor Local Government Secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State and chased away the party chairman, Manfred Ekundayo.

Narrating his narrow escape from the thugs led by one Chief Odion Olaye to ThisNigeria newspaper via telephone, Ekundayo said he was surprised when the thugs came into the compound armed with guns and other dangerous weapons and started to shoot sporadically into the air, thereby chasing people within the vicinity away.

“I want to reiterate that PDP is a well organized party; it is not a garage where thugs or Agberos operate.

” One Odion Olaye who came into our party not up to seven months now led his garage boys to invade my office. He came fully armed with guns, axes, pump action guns. It was only God Almighty that saved my life.

” The thugs broke into the office, carted away the N580,000 inside my table drawer, laptops, set of computers, the Generator and many other things from the party Secretariat.

” Olaye and his hoodlums cannot remove me and my secretary because they don’t have the constitutional power. Who was there with him during his kangaroo :no ward Chairmen, no Local Government Executives. So, please disregard his ranting. We are in charge.”

” Odion Olaye was also ranting here that Governor Godwin Obaseki has made him the Cordinator of PDP in Egor Local government and based on that he invaded our Secretariat and chased us away “

Meanwhile, as they chased away the chairman on Tuesday, the Odion Olaye group called some leaders of the party in Egor Local Government Area of the state and suspended the chairman and secretary of the party in the council.

The suspended executives were said to be those loyal to governor of the state, Mr. Godwin Obaseki who has been at loggerhead with the state excos.
