Invaders believed to be former militants also carted away huge sum of money, official documents and other valuable property in the duplex being used as the Obio/Akpor liaison office.

The Obio-Akpor LG liaison office was opened following the refusal of policemen to vacate the council’s secretariat from April 23, in line with the order of a Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, before Chairman Timothy Nsirim; his Deputy, Solomon Eke; and all the 17 suspended councillors were reinstated on November 25 by the Rivers High Court.

Chikordi Dike,former caretaker Chairman of Obio-Akpor council yesterday raised alarm over plots to eliminate him and the Chief of Staff, Government House, Port Harcourt, Chief Tony Okocha.

Okocha, in a telephone interview said,“Dynamite was thrown into the Obio/Akpor LG Council’s Liaison Office at Rumuola, Port Harcourt this (Wednesday) morning. I invited policemen to my Port Harcourt residence, when I got the report that Timothy Nsirim’s thugs, ex-militants and his supporters were mobilising to invade the house.
