An explosion has left three persons injured at a rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Rumu-Woji Playground, Port Harcourt.
It was gathered that no fewer than three persons were seriously injured in the incident that occurred on Thursday afternoon.
Two of the injured said to be women were rushed to the hospital for immediate medical attention.
The Publicity Secretary of the APC, Darlington Nwauju confirmed the incident, describing it as “unfortunate”
Recall earlier on Thursday that the APC and its rival party, PDP traded words over alleged denial of use of their campaign venue in the Etche Local Government Area of the state.
While the APC mocked the PDP-led government for allegedly sealing off its proposed campaign venue for fear of defeat, the PDP, on its part, lambasted the governorship candidate of the APC in the state, Tonye Cole, saying Rivers people could not rely on his assumed leadership.
