The caretaker committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state has suspended Magnus Abe, a former senator representing Rivers north-east, from the party.
Isaac Ogbubula, chairman of the caretaker committee, announced the suspension of the former senator while addressing a press conference in Port Harcourt on Saturday.
Apart from Abe, Igo Aguma, a former acting chairman of Rivers APC; Livingstone Nweche, former spokesperson of the party in Rivers, and Wogu Boms, a former Rivers commissioner of justice, were also suspended by the committee loyal to Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation.
The former senator and Amaechi have been at loggerheads over affairs of the APC in Rivers.
Speaking at the conference, Ogbubula said the wards of the affected persons recommended their expulsion from the party.
The national executive committee (NEC) of the APC will have to ratify the recommendation before it can take effect.
