Moses in coma surrounded by other thugs and relatives after the clash
BOMADI- The political thugs of honourable Nicholas Mutu, member representing Bomadi/Patani federal constituency and former Delta state Houseof Assembly speaker, Rt(Hon) Basil Ganagana yesterday in Bomadi staged themselves in a free-for-all fight of show of power ahead of the 2019 general election during the visit of the Delta State governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa for the PDP flag-off campaign in the area.
Daily Watch gathered that there was a pandemonium at the venue of the Local Government Elections flag off in Bomadi when some supporters loyal to Mutu allegedly attacked one Moses Amatu,a die hard supporter of Basil Ganagana, a former speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, who findings revealed is working around the clocks to replace Honourable Nicholas Mutu in the national Assembly from Bomad/Patani federal constituency. Report say several persons were injured and one in danger list in a private hospital in Bomadi, Bomadi LGA of Delta State.
The 2019 Bomadi federal constituency election may be bloody as many top PDP political leaders have conspired against honourable Mutu Nocholoas who they said has primarily occupied the seat consistently since 1999 till this day and that they want to butt Nicholas out with whatever means with a competent politician who is tested from the area. That Basil Ganagana is the replacement for Nicholas Mutu in 2019.
One of Nicholas Mutu supporters who spoke with Daily Watch on condition of anonymity, said, ‘‘Nobody in Bomadi/Patani federal constituency can move Mutu out of the National Assembly in 2019, except he voluntarily let go and allow another person to take over. Mutu is doing well and we are comfortable with him. We will vote him to represent us again and again as far as he needs our votes because he is doing well.’’ He noted.
According to eye witnesses, ‘The crisis erupted before the arrival of the Governor, Senator Okowa.It all started with political thugs loyal to Mutu destroying Basil Ganagana‘s posters and banners. The supporters were challenged by youths loyal to Basil Ganagana who demanded to know the reason for the destruction of Basil’s posters and banners.’’
We gathered that the crisis later escalated when supporters of Rt.Hon.(Barr) Basil Ganagana thronged the venue in their tens with banners of Basil Ganagana chanting songs of victory, a situation which provoked the supporters of Mutu who began with attack on one Mr.Moses Amatu,the leader of the Basil group until he became unconscious and was rushed to the hospital.
Sources said the brutalized Moses is in bad state as he may have internal bleeding as the severe torture made him went on coma until he was rushed to a private hospital in Bomadi for treatment.
However, it will be recalled that a similar incident occurred on the 26th of June,2015 when the wife of former Governor, Mrs.Sheila Roli Uduaghan visited Bomadi Local Government Area in her monthly Local Government prayer programme and sources said, this same Amatu who is now in hospital and others were allegedly wounded by Honourable Nicholas Mutu supporters.
