PDP members exchange blows in Abuja [Photos]


Fighting broke out yesterday at the Anambra State stand during the special convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Fight started when notorious Uba brothers, Nnamdi (Andy) and Chris Uba tried to take center stage at the Anambra shed.
The event happened at the stand allotted to the state inside the square.
Few minutes before the arrival of� President Goodluck Jonathan, the Anambra section of the venue was thrown into confusion� when the two groups laying claim to the governorship ticket in the state exchanged blows for about an hour over sitting position.
There was peace in the stand until the arrival of Nwoye, who came with his group, made up mostly of young men and women.
It was initially difficult for him to find a seat, but when he sighted one, he was told that it was reserved for a guest.
The youths told Andy Uba� that� he� was serving a suspension from the party and that he ought not be at the event.
Andy, who is a serving senator from the state, remained silent, but his brother asserted that� the suspension had been lifted by a court judgment.
His explanation did not appease the already charged youths as the shouting match degenerated into a brawl when one of the youths pushed Chris and people behind him.
Chris however stood his ground and the exchange of punches and blows continued among their supporters.
�Sensing danger, security agents attached to Oduah tactically moved the minister out of the scene to ensure that she was not hurt.
