Some supporters of the Rivers State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Sim Fubara beat up officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Tuesday night.

Nigeria info gathered learned the EFCC operatives attempted to arrest Mr. Fubara as the chartered plane carrying him and other PDP members landed at the Omagwa Airport in Rivers State from Abuja.

The operatives were beaten as they made to arrest the PDP flag bearer who had gone to Abuja to receive his certificate of return.

It is unclear if the anti-graft agency officials suffered serious injuries.

The EFCC and the police are yet to speak on the matter and neither did Mr. Fubara nor the PDP speak about it when he arrived at the party’s secretariat in Port Harcourt Tuesday night.

The EFCC had declared the PDP candidate wanted over a N117 billion alleged fraud.
