ENUGU — A factional chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State, who allegedly led armed thugs to hijack and burn the membership register of All Progressives Congress, APC, in the area, is now on the run.

The PDP chieftain was said to have fled when he got a hint that policemen were on his trail over the alleged crime.

The PDP chieftain had led the thugs to hijack the register while collation of materials from the just concluded APC membership registration was ongoing at Udi collation centre at IFEPET Garden, Ninth Mile Corner.

The thugs reportedly dumped the register in a nearby bush, soaked it with petrol and set it on fire.
