Kidnapped Rivers APC campaign director shot dead

Chisom Lennard, the APC campaign coordinator in Rivers State’s Ahoada-West Local Government Area, was killed by gunmen hours after being kidnapped.

While voting for the governorship and state House of Assembly elections took place at Ibagwa polling unit 2 ward 10 in Ahoada West LGA, Lennard was reportedly abducted by gunmen wearing police uniforms.

According to reports, the APC leader attempted to stop the gunmen from stealing poll equipment before being commando-style abducted.

The State APC Publicity Secretary, Darlington Nwauju, confirmed the incident to newsmen.

Nwauju stated, “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.
