The Peoples Democratic Party, Abia State chapter has raised the alarm over alleged plot by the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, to arrest and detain its members especially in Abia.
This was contained in statement signed by Don Ubani, Abia State PDP Publicity Secretary.
The statement further stated that the “APC leaders in Abia knows that the electorate in the State have no confidence in them, therefore, they’re hell bent on wrecking havoc in the State”.
The full statement reads that; “Intelligence Report available to PDP in Abia State clearly shows that the All Progressives Congress in the State has concluded arrangements with some unscrupulous security personnel in the payroll of the Party to start harassing, intimidating, arresting and even detaining Members of PDP in the State, on trump-up allegations.
“This sinister and unlawful plot is sequel to PDP’s discovery of the Party’s plans to rig the postponed Presidential and National Assembly elections of Saturday 16th February, 2019.
“By this release, PDP in Abia State is drawing the attention of the Acting Inspector-General of Police, the Director-General of Department of State Service, the Chief of Army Staff and Heads of other Security Agencies in Nigeria to warn their Personnel not to succumb to the whims and caprices of inordinate and desperate APC leaders in the State who know the electorate in the State have no confidence in them and are, therefore, hell bent on wrecking havoc in the State.
“PDP insists that the prevailing peace in the State, which the administration of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has worked hard to achieve, should not be thrown to the wind because of some individuals’ vaulting ambition.
“It is the cherished opinion of PDP in the State that the forthcoming elections should be conducted under very conducive electoral environment.
“This Press alert should be taken seriously by all those involved in the security architecture of the country. In the event of PDP Members being unlawfully harassed, intimidated, arrested and detained by compromised security agents, the Party would have no option than to call on her members to resist such illegalities.
“Let the peace in Abia State be allowed to prevail by the APC and Security Agencies.
