There was palpable tension at Twon Brass jetty in the Brass local government area of Bayelsa State when officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were offloading the election materials.
This followed a misunderstanding that occurred between supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over where the election materials should be kept ahead of tomorrow’s (Saturday’s) governorship election.
It was alleged that the Brass Local Government Area PDP Chairman, identified as Bara Daniel was injured in the head by supporters of the APC, led by the former council chairman, Victor Isaiah.
Speaking with newsmen, Isaiah denied any involvement in the assault. He said that he saved the day because of the alleged unruly behaviour of Mr Daniel who was intimidating APC supporters over how to secure the election materials.
“I was there actually to monitor the process of the materials offloading but the PDP chairman kept making derogatory statements which unsettled some people but I was able to calm the situation,” Isaiah said.
However, normalcy was restored by some military personnel who intervened.
