According to reports, the APC chieftain attempted to stop the gunmen from stealing election materials before being commando-escorted away.
Darlington Nwauju, the state APC Publicity Secretary, confirmed the incident.
“He was abducted from his polling unit during the voting process and taken away,” Nwauju stated.
“Nobody knew where they took him to. It was later yesterday evening (Saturday) that his body was discovered. He was the APC LGA caretaker chairman and a PhD student at the Rivers State University.”
Late Lennard’s body was found in a pool of blood and riddled with bullets along the Ibueahi-Ubeta road in Ahoada West LGA of the state.
The late APC chieftain was an estate surveyor and a former board member of the Greater Port Harcourt City Development Authority during the tenure of Rotimi Amaechi.
