Another corpse has been recovered following the violence that erupted during the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary election yesterday in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state.
The latest victim identified as Engr. Emmanuel Asuquo, the younger brother of the Etim Ekpo Chapter Chairman of APC and a party agent of Senator Udoedehe – was allegedly shot dead when Etim Ekpo governorship primary election materials were released at the APC State Secretariat complex, Ikot Ekpene Road, Uyo.
The victim’s corpse was brought all the way from Uruan to Uyo, where it was dumped at the premises of the state secretariat of the APC, along Ikot Ekpene Road.
Some areas in the state capital, Uyo, were reported to have been taken over by the thugs, who many suspect are working for one of the governorship aspirants of the party.
