The youth wing of the Rivers State chapter All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the renewed destruction of the party campaign materials by some alleged hired political thugs in the state.Â
They also called for swift intervention from the Federal Government to avert the impending violence that may lace the rerun elections in the state.Â
Leader of the group, Comrade Goodnews AmadiÂ Â who spoke in Port Harcourt on Monday said the act of destroying theÂ Â campaign materials belonging to the APC may lead to violence in the legislative rerun elections if not curbed.Â
He advised youths not to allowing themselves to be used by dubious politicians to incite trouble, adding that it was wrong for a set of persons to go destroying properties that belong to other parties in the state.
The youth leader recalled that the violence that took in the state in 2015 where over 100 lives were wasted also started with destruction of campaign billboards.Â
He called on the Federal Government and Rivers State police Command to intervene and fish out the master-minders of the act and punish them accordingly to avoid further breakdown of law.
