Our correspondent who was invited to witness the botched Congress observed that trouble started after some Local Government Area chairmen stood against the commencement of the Congress.
They insisted that staff members of the Independent National Electoral Commission who were invited to witness the Congress should go.
Insisting the Imo state chapter of the SDP was “not for sale”, the angry politicians said that the internal differences must be resolved before a state Congress would hold.
The exchange of words resulted in a fight when the Oguta Local Government Area chairman, Chidi Oziri, approached his Okigwe LGA colleague, Nwankwo Maduka, and told him to sit down.
Maduka immediately cautioned him, then Oziri slapped him and used weapons on him which he retaliated. jamb results
