At least 5 cars belonging to Senator Lee Maeba have been destroyed by gunmen suspected to be political thugs.
This happened after the gunmen in the early hours of Thursday morning invaded Maeba’s residence in the GRA, Phase 3 axis of Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Maeba is the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council in Rivers State.
A source told Punch that the hoodlums came from a nearby street, shot sporadically at his entrance, and eventually broke into the former Senator’s compound.
They reportedly destroyed about five cars, including a jeep, while three persons in the compound, including Senator Maeba’s relative scampered for safety.
When Punch visited the scene about 10:50am, a team of operatives of the Department of State Services and policemen along with the Senator were seen driving into the residence.
