Port Harcourt - The All Progressive Congress in the Rivers State, following the killing of nine of their members, have declared a week of mourning due to two separate incidents in Port Harcourt, Naij reported.
The party has condemned the killing and have declared that only APC members were targeted.
This incident is politically motivated as those responsible want to lessen the number of APC members ahead of the upcoming elections says Rivers APC chairman, Dr Davies Ikanya.
