Rivers - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called for the prosecution of a staunch member of the People’s Democratic Party who has reportedly run riot and destroyed the secretariat of APC non-indigenes in Bonny, Rivers State.
Asinyetogha Jumbo, also known as Oboaja, the landlord of the said property rented by the occupants, is alleged to have caused some destruction in protest of after the inauguration of some Bonny indigenes leaders over the weekend.
It is alleged after the inauguration, Jumbo attacked and destroyed the billboards, flags and other signage of the APC around the secretariat that serves as APC non-indigenes' Secretariat in Bonny.
The landlord, it has been reported, then descended on the secretariat, defacing and destroying parts of the secretariat beyond use.

All attempts by eyewitnesses to restrain the assailant, who could not be tracked for comment, reportedly proved abortive, said witnesses.
The tenants were eventually forced to report the matter to the Bonny Divisional Police who reportedly arrested Jumbo.
However, the APC later learnt that the culprit was released by the police under hazy circumstances that have left the complainants asking many questions than they are getting answers, APC Rivers spokesperson, Chris Finebone, said.
He urged the Rivers State Commissioner of Police to urgently intervene in the matter and ensure that Jumbo was immediately arrested and prosecuted.
“The APC would like to count on the resolve of CP Musa Kimo to nip violence and criminality in the bud and, in this case, personally get the Bonny Divisional Police office to do the needful by making Mr. Jumbo face the law without delay to forestall our members from the temptation and lure of self-help” the statement advised.”
