An explosion suspected to be dynamite, on Tuesday night, rocked a facility housing the Wish FM and Atlantic Television in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

This is coming the same night unknown gunmen attacked the residence of the House of Representatives candidate on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), King Tony Gboms, in the State.

Prime Business Africa gathered that both Wish FM and Atlantic Television are owned by Hon. Chinyere Igwe, a member of the House of Representatives and staunch supporter of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
