News has filtered to this website that the National Working Committee, NWC of the All Progressive Congress, APC have frowned at the molestation and harassment of Local Government Executives from Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State.
Last Friday, Ekeh was alleged to have deployed some thugs in collaboration with one Mr. Jeff Nwoha to molest and harass party members suspected to be loyal to Senator Ifeanyi Araraume.
APC Local Government Executives from Isiala Mbano and Ezinihitte Mbaise were barred from being part of the meeting which took place at the APC State Secretariat, Owerri.
In the process of the molestation, a journalist attached to a local tabloid in Owerri, Mr. Destiny Isinwa was also attacked.
Trouble had began when Mr. Eke, a loyalist of Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha replaced the Chairman of Isiala Mbano APC executive with a party stalwart of his. The move was swiftly challenged by Senator Ifeanyi Arararume who got the party’s national leadership to reverse the appointment and favoured his choice executives.
The senator is from Isiala Mbano Local Government. Sources said the aggrieved APC members made formal complains to the party leadership over their molestation triggered by the state party chairman.
A local tabloid in Owerri said that the party may set up a Disciplinary Committee to sanction the party chairman for the act.
