Iju Tony Nwabunike armed with iron rods and brandishing all manner of dangerous weapons vandalized and tore down everything in sight, sending panic wave at workers and early callers at the erstwhile quiet Secretariat.
Findings by our reporters revealed that members of the Association of Igbo Maritime Practitioners in Nigeria, ASIMPIN, had slated a solidarity visit to the National President of ANLCA, Hon. Iju Tony Nwabunike for this day.
