A group, Nasarawa State concerned All Progressives Congress, APC, members, has threatened violence over the recent suspension of the state’s deputy governor, Damishi Barau, for alleged anti-party affairs.

On Monday, the state Interim Chairman of the party, Standly Buba, announced the suspension of Mr. Barau for faulting the directive of the National Executive Council of the APC that its federal lawmakers boycott executive bills.

Addressing a press conference at the state’s National Union of Journalists secretariat along Makurdi road, Lafia, Wednesday, the leader of the group, Nathaniel Isah, alleged that the suspension was a calculated attempt to rubbish the deputy governor.

“We dare whatever power that wants to create uncertainty and turmoil in our state or benefit from chaos and warn them to be careful,” Mr. Nathaniel said.

He said that the group will not fold its arms and watch people create confusion in an already tensed atmosphere.

“It seems some people prefer war than peace and harmony. Even at a time that our people are still in refugee camps in their own state,” he said.

The group claimed that the suspension was orchestrated to disrupt the peace that the state enjoyed.

“Recent events in Nasarawa state clearly indicates that a devilish and clandestine plan has been devised to humiliate and black mail Hon Damishi Luka Barau, the deputy governor of the state,” Mr. Nathaniel stated.
