Abuja - Activities at the national secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were on Wednesday grounded to a halt by a mob of angry party members and aspirants from Rivers State, reports Sahara Reporters.
The protesters forced the national chairman of Party, Adamu Mu'azu and other members of the party's national working committee to abandon their respective offices.
No staff was also allowed access to the secretariat as the three gates leading to the premises were effectively blocked by the protesters.
The aggrieved party members were protesting against what they called the overbearing influence of former minister of state for Education, Nyesom Wike in the series of party primaries in the state.
