Some members of the Peoples Democratic Party, protesting in Abuja were almost killed in a reckless accident during their protest.
The members of the party had gathered in the FCT to protest against the sacking of the former governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha by the Supreme court.
The Supreme Court had on January 14 nullified the victory of Chief Emeka Ihedioha, who is the PDP Imo State 2019 governorship candidate, spurring some leaders of the party to embark on the protest.
The protesters, who had taken off from the PDP complex in Maitama, Abuja popularly called the Legacy House, were en route to the Supreme Court, but on getting to the Eagles Square, they noticed that suspected members of the All Progressives Congress had gathered at the Supreme Court junction.
The leaders of the protest, to avoid clash or confrontation with the suspected APC members, decided to stop the PDP members from continuing with the protest to the Supreme Court, which initially was supposed to be the terminal point of the protest.
The protest did not also end without an accident. Some of the PDP protesters escaped death by the whiskers.
