Owerri - Former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State Nnamdi Anyaehie on Sunday took the laws into his hands when he and members of his erstwhile executives put the state party secretariat under lock and key in flagrant violation of the judgment of a High Court in Orlu, Imo State last Friday.
Anyaehie had brought a suit before the court challenging the appointment of a new caretaker committee to take over from him by the National Working Committee of the party.

Justice Ononeze Madu in his judgement ruled that the case filed by the Anyaehie-led executives had no merit as the same party that appointed them, dissolved them in line with party Constitution.
Less than 72 hours after the judgment, the Anyaehie group stormed the party office with over 100 thugs and disrupted an enlarged party meeting which attracted stakeholders from across the 27 council areas of the state by forcefully locking up the party office.
