Some members of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, posted as part of security at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu, venue of the South-East rally of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, exchanged blows with some policemen early this morning.
The incident, which happened near the VIP pavilion led to exchange of blows between members of the two security agencies, while the State Security Services, SSS, worked to reconcile the two parties.

The members of the NSCDC decried what they called unnecessary intimidation from the police.
