In a tweet on his official Twitter handle, Nabena also claimed that PDP thugs were shooting sporadically in the area.

“Material for Ward 3,4,7,9 and 11 have been hijacked to an unknown location by @OfficialPDPNig thugs at Sagbama. Sporadic shooting in the area as well by @OfficialPDPNig led thugs. @inecnigeria #BayelsaDecides,” he tweeted.
