The governorship primaries in Enugu State was marred by crisis yesterday, as some groups led by one of the aspirants, disrupted the process.
As at 6.30pm the primary billed for the University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus (UNEC) stadium had not started.
Earlier, a group led by a faction of the party had attempted to gain entrance into the venue, but was stopped by the security agencies led by the state Commissioner of Police, Dan Mallam Muhammed.
But after the initial hitches that almost marred the exercise, normalcy returned as the primary came underway about 8.30pm.
Former governor of the state, Sullivan Chime, Chief Jim Nwobodo and Director General, Voice of Nigeria (VON), Osita Okechukwu, were among chieftains of the party sighted during the exercise.
