Twin explosions suspected to be dynamites on Thursday disrupted the Local Government primary elections of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

It was gathered that the dynamite were detonated in a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) parked in front of the party secretariat located along Aba Road.

The explosion, which occurred at about 3pm during the councilorship primaries of the party sent members of the PDP running for safety.

Though nobody or group had claimed responsibility for the blasts, it was gathered that party members, who ran away later came back after calm had returned to the area.

The Publicity Secretary of PDP, Tambari Sydney Gbara, could not speak on the incident by press time,  but an eyewitness confirmed the incident.

The eyewitness, who spoke in confidence, said: “There was panic today​ as two dynamites exploded during the Councillorship primaries of the people’s democratic party today.

“I was at the party secretariat. The dynamite was detonated by suspected bombers in an SUV car along the Aba road office of the party secretariat at about 3pm

“Party supporters who were seen around the secretariat to support their proffered​candidates scampered for safety​

“It is not, however, clear on the reason of the blast, but it might not be unconnected to allegations of imposition of candidates in some LGAs. Calm has however returned to the secretariat.”
