In Ozuoba, in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, gunmen assaulted a prominent radio station, Wish FM 99.5, and the Atlantic Television Network on Tuesday night. They used explosives, possibly dynamite, as well as sporadic gunfire.
The event, which happened at around 8:40 p.m., caused some equipment and property to be destroyed in the building that houses the two media organizations that Chinyere Igwe, a member of the House of Representatives, owns.
Igwe is a fervent admirer of Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s nominee for president. He verified the occurrence when called, adding, “What I am delighted about is that no life was lost.”
Grace Iringe-Koko, a spokesman for the state police command, claimed that they had yet to get the report of the incident, but promised to find out from the Divisional Police Officer and give a feedback.
