Aggrieved PDP Members Shut down Secretariat in Nasarawa.

The group who stormed the PDP Secretariat along Jos road Lafia the Nasarawa State capital locked the main gate of the building and stopped anyone from entering.

The protesting PDP members drove out Journalists who were at the Secretariat waiting for the arrival of the state party chairman and other officials to address the press.
The state PDP Caretaker Committee Chairman Mr Francis Orogu who later addressed the press at his private resident said they would appeal the judgment and insisted that he remains the Caretaker Committee Chairman of PDP in Nasarawa State as directed by the national Secretariat of the party.
Meanwhile, security personnel have been deployed to the area to curtail further breakdown of law and order.
