Some youths in Cross River State have peacefully protested and barricaded the State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) secretariat in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
Amidst heavy Police presence and gunshots, the PDP members were visibly angry as they protested against the automatic return ticket the leadership of the party recently announced for National Assembly members.
They were seen bearing placards expressing their grievances.
Many of the protesters that spoke off record with our reporter questioned the prerogative of the leadership of the party to decide on the fate of the entire State and country.
As at the time of filing this report no party official had come to address the agrieved party members.
Below are pictures from the protest.
