The Monday, January 20, protest organised by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja, turned sour as many supporters and loyalists of the political organisation reportedly sustained injuries from an accident.
It was learned that the truck carrying some protesting members of the party to the venue of the protest swerved off the road with many of them sustaining injuries.
According to Sahara Reporters, the accident happened at the Transcorp Hilton junction.
On its part, Daily Trust reports that four members of the party sustained injuries adding that the accident happened when the driver of the truck lost control of the vehicle.
The truck hit another vehicle in the convoy conveying the members of the party to the Supreme Court where they were headed to express their grievance over the recent judgement against the former governor, Emeka Ihedioha, of Imo state.
This particular report said the accident happened moments after the protesting PDP members left the Legacy House in Maitama and were on their way to the federal secretariat.
According to it, as the driver lost control of the vehicle, some of the members jumped out in a bid to escape unhurt, but they ended up sustaining injuries.
Legit.ng reported how the PDP, early Monday, January 20, commenced its earlier announced protest in Abuja, Nigeria's capital city.
The opposition party's protest was led by two top officials - Uche Secondus, national chairman of the PDP, and Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra and Atiku Abubakar's running mate in the 2019 presidential election.
The report said other principal members of the party took part in the protest.
The PDP is asking the Supreme Court to reverse the judgement concerning Imo state's governorship election.
