The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cancelled its national convention in Port Harcourt after a siege on the venue of the event by the police.
The Cable reports that an official of the party confirmed this development to it on Wednesday.
The national executive of the party was to be elected in the convention, but that did not happen. Instead, the tenure of the caretaker committee led by by Ahmed Makarfi was extended.
He said the tenure of the committee had been extended for one year, and that a new date would be scheduled for a fresh convention.
