A serving senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was, over the weekend, embarrassed by angry youths armed with clubs, sachet water and pebbles.
The incident, which took at Ekiugbo-Iyede community in Isoko North Local Government Area of Delta State, started when Senator James Manager, representing Delta South and other members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the area, made a thank-you-visit to the community.

Also part of the embarrassed delegation were Secretary to the Delta State Government (SSG), Comrade Ovourzorie Macaulay; Honourable Leo Ogor, member representing Isoko in the House of Representatives; Isoko representative in the DESOPADEC board, Mr. Joe Ogeh and Honourable Tim Owhefereunity.
