Following the affirmation of Sheriff as the national chairman of the party by a Port Harcourt Appeal Court, the Makarfi’s faction had scheduled an emergency meeting for Monday, February 20.
The Makarfi-faction of the PDP was however stopped from holding its stakeholders meeting at the International Conference Center (ICC). The meeting was shifted to the Ekiti lodge following a barricade by men of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF).
Meanwhile the NPF in a statement by its spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah, said the command received credible intelligence that the two factions in the party planned to use the venue for their meetings and a violent clash may have occurred.
