There were recorded free-for-all fights at various secretariats of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in Imo state following discrepancies arose from the just concluded delegates' congresses. 


While in Owerri, no fewer than 50 security personnel from the Nigeria Police Force, Department of Security Services, DSS, and the Civil Defense Corps were spotted at the Imo PDP State Headquarters along Okigwe Road Owerri to avert a possible breakdown of law and order, the war ragged at various LG headquarters of the party where supporters of the presidential aspirants fought dirty. According to eye witness account, Oru-East LGA party chairman Mr. Anayo Nwanjiezi escaped mob action over his alleged act of impunity, but supporters of Bukola Saraki, Aminu Tambuwal and Atiku Abubarkar were at each other's throat in Ngor Okpala which led to exchange of blows and throwing of bottles.
So many passersby incurred different degrees of injuries and others were rough-handled mistakenly. It was gathered that crisis ensued when supporters of Atiku Abubakar suspected that they have been frustrated out of the system by loyalists of Saraki. Hence they became restive and protested. But their protests felt on deaf ears which resulted into severe war.
