Chisom Lennard, the APC campaign coordinator in Rivers State’s Ahoada-West Local Government Area, was kidnapped and later discovered dead.
PUNCH said that when voting for the governorship and state House of Assembly elections was taking place at Ibagwa polling unit 2 ward 10 in Ahoada West LGA, Lennard was abducted by gunmen wearing police uniforms.
When he was taken away in a commando-style, the APC head reportedly tried to stop the gunmen from stealing election equipment.
Late Lennard’s body was riddled with bullets in a pool of his blood along the Ibueahi-Ubeta road in Ahoada+West LGA of the state on Saturday evening.
The deceased was an estate surveyor and a former board member of the Greater Port Harcourt City Development Authority during the tenure of Rotimi Amaechi.
The State APC Publicity Secretary, Darlington Nwauju, confirmed the sad development to the Punch.
“He was abducted from his polling unit during the voting process and taken away. Nobody knew where they took him to. It was later in the evening of Saturday that his body was discovered.” he said.
