The protests in Owerri came after Governor Hope Uzodinma had issued a stern warning that he will not henceforth tolerate such protests in the State capital any more.
Also, PDP supporters also reportedly took their protests to the European Union, EU Commission in Abuja.
The protests are part of measures adopted by Ihedioha’s supporters to press home their demand that the Supreme Court should review it’s judgement of January 14, 2019.
The apex court had sacked Ihedioha as Imo State Governor and declared Senator Hope Uzodinma as duly elected Governor of the State.
The PDP and Ihedioha faulted the judgement alleging that the beneficiary of the judgement, Senator Uzodinma misled the Supreme Court.
Last week, Ihedioha’s lawyers approached the Supreme Court to officially seek for review and reversal of the judgement on the grounds that it was ” a nullity”
