JUST IN: Police Disperse, Teargas Obi’s Supporters In Ebonyi

The Police in Ebonyi State on Saturday dispersed supporters of the OBI-dient movement who gathered at the Pastoral Centre, Abakaliki for the one-million-march for the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

Men of the Nigeria Police Force were seen teargasing Obi’s supporters, who numbered over 1,000.

The incident caused both human and vehicular traffic on the popular Old Enugu Road, in the capital city, on Saturday morning.

One of the supporters, Steve Ugama, said aside dispersing and tear-gassing the supporters, about five of his colleagues have been arrested by the police.

He said, “This is inhuman and undemocratic. We have gathered here this morning for our peaceful March, all of a sudden, the police came and started tear-gassing us and arresting our people.
