POLITICS :Tension in Bayelsa as APC, PDP supporters fight over electoral materials.
Less than 24 hours to Saturday’s governorship election in Bayelsa State, violence has reportedly erupted at the Twon-Brass jetty in the Brass Local Government Area of the state.
It was learnt that the supporters of the All Progressives Congress and the ruling Peoples Democratic Party clashed over electoral materials meant for voting in the area, sparking tension in the area.
The officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission deployed in the area were trying to offload the electoral when the violence occurred.
It could not be confirmed if the electoral materials were sensitive or non-sensitive items.
The supporters of both parties were said to have disagreed over when the electoral items would be kept ahead of tomorrow’s governorship polls.
Some sources alleged that Brass LGA PDP chairman identified as Bara Daniel was injured in the head during the scuffle that ensued.
It was also alleged that a former council chairman, Victor Isaiah, was also involved in the fracas.
Isaiah, a chieftain of the APC, however, denied involvement in the assault of the PDP stalwart, saying he intervened to diffuse the tension.
