ABUJA—Men of the Nigeria Police, who laid siege to the national headquarters of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday lifted the siege following a request to the police by the party’s Board of Trustees, BoT.

The siege was mounted following factional conventions in Abuja and Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on May 21 by rival groups in the party. Police left the secretariat premises yesterday at 11a.m.

The Secretary of BoT, Chief Ojo Maduekwe, who arrived the party secretariat at 1:10p.m.,ý told journalists that the board asked the police to unseal the secretariat.

He said the caretaker committee headed by Senator Ahmed Makarfi would resume duty at a later day.
