The crisis rocking the Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) took a new twist, yesterday, as scores of hoodlums vandalised the state secretariat of a faction of the party in Port Harcourt.

The Guardian gathered that the secretariat, opened by a faction of the party loyal to Senator Magnus Abe, a governorship aspirant, was attacked at about 9:00am on Saturday.

An eyewitness told journalists that hoodlums, who vandalised the secretariat wore black and were armed with lethal weapons.

According to him, as soon as they entered the building, they smashed the windows, broke the ceiling and pull down the APC flags.
