Rivers State: APC woman leader, son kill man over campaign poster

Tragedy struck on Saturday, January 5, 2019 at about 8:20 pm when a young man in his late 20s, identified as Chimezie Dike, was stabbed to death during a fight with one Henry Ekeozor over the pasting of campaign posters on the wall of a building at 40B Azikiwe Street, Mile 2 Diobu, in Port Harcourt City Local Government Area of Rivers State.

According to eyewitness account, the deceased, a native of Nwangele Local Government Area of Imo State, had allegedly gone to paste campaign posters of a House of Representative candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Collyns Owondah, on the said building when he was attacked and stabbed on the chest by Henry.

The deceased, according to sources, was not a member of APC, but was contracted to paste the campaign posters of  Owondah, on the said building when  Henry and his mother, Ifeoma Ekeozor, resisted the move leading to a fierce argument with Dike, a development that degenerated into a fight before the victim was stabbed.
