Prince Nicholas Ukachukwu from Nnewi South local government area was last night declared the winner of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA, senatorial candidate for Anambra South zone.

He defeated Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu, wife of the late Ikemba Nnewi and Dr. Anselem Enyimba

In the keenly contested primary held at the Ekwulobia township stadium in Aguata, Mrs. Ojukwu polled 177 votes to Ukachukwu’s 211.

Before the accreditation of delegates, there was heavy shooting at the venue which disrupted proceedings for a while.

The former beauty queen was supported the Governor Willie Obiano. An oil magnate, Chief Ifeanyi Ubah, bidding for the same ticket, was disqualified by the party earlier in the week.

The Ekwulobia stadium was under heavy security as Commissioner of Police Garba Umar was personally there to ensure there was no breach of the peace

The Movement for the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) was opposed to Mrs. Ojukwu getting the ticket. Children of the late Dim Ojukwu also campaigned against her.
