” Venezuelan Offices of the `Opposition Party Popular Will’ have been raided to arrest their Founder ”

#AceWorldNews says Venezuelan military intelligence officers are reported to have raided the headquarters of the country’s opposition party, Popular Will.

Several of the party’s officials alleged armed officers arrived at the office, threw tear gas, and attempted to remove several individuals from the premises.

“The intelligence officers arrived and began to harass us,” said party activist Adriangela Ruiz. Security camera footage provided by Popular Will, which has not been independently verified, showed officers entering the party’s offices armed with guns.
