Scores Injured As Youths Scramble For Atiku’s Money
Several people were injured after they engaged each other in a nasty fist fight over money doled out by former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.
Atiku was in Delta State on Tuesday in continuation of his consultative meetings to solicit for delegates support ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential primaries.
Trouble started shortly after Atiku exited from the Unity Hall in Delta State Government House, venue of the meeting, when irate youths pounced on the party officials whose duty it was to allocate money to various delegates from the 25 local government areas of the state.
The scramble for the money resulted in injuries as security men shot sporadically inside the hall.
Delegates in their desperation snatched huge bundles of money and made away, with others in hot pursuit around the Delta State Government House grounds.
Security personnel attached to many party leaders shot into the air to scare away the youths as the situation threatened to degenerate.
An unidentified youth was chased around the grounds and beaten up as he tried to escape with wads of naira notes.
He was stripped naked and beaten to stupor.
Torn five hundred naira notes littered the grounds as desperate youths attempted to escape with the loot.
