Loyalists of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) aspirants in Kogi State yesterday turned the Lokoja party secretariat into a war zone.

It was learnt that “disenchanted” supporters of a former House of Assembly member, Danladi Bababudan, attacked supporters of an aspirant, Idris Idakwo, who was allegedly anointed by Bababudan.

Idako was at the party secretariat to collect the nomination form to vie for the Lokoja II House of Assembly seat.

Both parties threw stones at one other and vandalised vehicles parked on the road, including a Mercedes Benz 190 belonging to Mr. Sunday Adebija of Prime FM, Lokoja, and a Toyota KIA belonging to the Publisher of Kogiwatch, Mr. Amuda Suleiman.

While they were on the rampage, Senator Smart Adeyemi’s agents picked a nomination form on his behalf for the Kogi West senatorial seat.

It took the intervention of the police to restore normalcy to the area.

A patrol vehicle and some policemen were stationed at the party secretariat.
