Security operatives on Saturday manhandled and embarrassed the former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP), Olisa Metuh, as he was turned back from entering the state box where dignitaries were seated at the elective convention of the party.
Trouble started when Metuh arrived the Eagle Square and headed toward the state box where the names of the expected dignitaries have been attached to seats. The stern looking security stationed at the entrance told him that his name was not on the list and he would not be allowed to enter.
The development made him flare up and began to shout on top of his voice. In an attempt to force himself onto the box he met a stiff resistance from the officials of Department of State Service (DSS).
This led to a heated argument and altercation which nearly resorted to fisticuff with a visibly angry Metuh lashing out the arrangements.
It took the intervention of the Chairman of the National Convention and Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, who appealed and calmed fray nerves of the former spokesman.
Metuh was later accompanied to the pavilion of Anambra State delegates.
