UGHELLI —SOME aspirants who lost out in the just concluded Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, primaries in Delta State, have demanded the return of monies given to delegates to solicit for votes before the exercise.

Recounting how he was made to refund a total of N1.4million, a delegate from Burutu North constituency told Vanguard that two of the aspirants from the constituency who lost out at the primaries, threatened to unleash mayhem on him and his family if he did not refund monies collected for the exercise.
