Asaba—DELTA State secretariat of Democratic Peoples’ Party, DPP, has been burgled with vital documents, including files and desktop computer reportedly stolen.
It was gathered that the incident took place, weekend at the party’s secretariat at Umuezei Quarters, adjacent to the palace of Asagba of Asaba.
At press time, no arrest had been made but the state Chairman of the party, Chief Tony Ezeagwu, said the burglary was politically motivated as the thieves left a note behind.
He said: “The doors were still locked the way we left them on Friday but the burglars climbed the overhead tank and entered the offices through the roof. They left a note which read, We know your plans, not far from the administrative office, where the vital documents and the desktop were removed.
“As far as I am concerned, this is not far-fetched; all that happened ws political. They did not come here to steal because they did not remove the radios, fridges and other valuables. Even the bullet proof vest of the police, which was in the office was not removed. They came clearly for our documents and they cleared the administrative office.”
He said that the matter had been reported to police.
