APC cries out over alleged PDP-instigated violence, voting disruptions in Lagos, Rivers, Ondo states

The All Progressives Congress has alerted the security agencies to cases of violence and disruption of voting in several areas of Lagos, Rivers and Ondo states, urging them to swing into action to ameliorate the situation.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Saturday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said in many parts of Lagos, thugs armed by the PDP are on rampage, shooting sporadically to scare away voters and carting away voting materials.
It said the development confirmed earlier statements by the APC that the PDP has been engaging in gun running in Lagos, with a view to arming thugs to disrupt the polls.
APC listed instances as follows:


– PDP thugs on rampage in Abule Okuta area of Bariga LCDA. Their sporadic shootings have disrupted the accreditation exercise in the area as INEC officials, voters and residents scamper for safety.
– PDP thugs are harassing and intimidating APC agents, and INEC officials are refusing to show result sheets to APC agents who demand such. There are fears that those results sheets may have been handed over to PDP.
– PDP agents storm Polling Units in Apapa Ward A Unit 009 with persons who who do not belong to the PUs and they were accredited
– OPC thugs under police protection attacking voters and INEC officials all over Lagos.

    I am praying that the mumu Oba does not make good on his threat to drown my people starting today. I know that God is greater than the ritualistic oba and his bloodthirsty thugs.

    Almighty God save my people from haters. Amen

    • Olu

      Your bloodthirsty Jonathan and PDP will surely end up Lagoon. Lagos is not meant for people that lack home training.

    Jonathan knew what he has ordered PDP thugs to do during the governorship election. That is why he was shouting people should accept the results of the elections. People’s will can never be stolen again.

    • begy

      If you lose, go home. Jonathan does not order tugs. Violence begets violence. No one will attack you if you are innocent. When pointing one finger are at someone, watch the number of fingers pointing at you.

    Since three separate court orders restricted Dumbo from deploying the military for this elections, INEC should reject all results in areas/states where soldiers, navy or thugs were used to disrupt the electorate from carrying out their civic mandates. So much for Dumbo being a hero of democracy, the man is evil and never meant well for Nigeria had the international community not moved quickly to restrain him with threats of jail term if he didn’t concede defeat to Gen. Buhari. He went to Lagos on Thursday and met with thugs like Gani Adams and Obanikoro, the minutes of their meeting is what is playing out on the streets of Lagos, Rivers, Osun and other States. Prof. Jega must cancel rigged elections and reschedule them for long after Dumbo has handed over government to sane people. This is unacceptable and clear proof the Otuoke evil servant is a deceitful jinx better fitted for gulag for all his atrocities against Nigerians. Nonsense!

      You are reacting based on allegations levelled against opposition party by APC propaganda mechines. That is yet to be confirmed. Now APC is the saint being attacked. The killing recorded against APC was not mentioned. Buhari was in Lagos to campaign for APC, heads did not roll, Jonathan came to Lagos to support his party, and he is branded evil for meeting with his party members. APC should go into the field, mobilise their supporters to vote and stop crying foul. Jonathan is not more evil than Buhari and Tinubu. Please spare the young man.

    How are we sure of this allegation, Politicians often cry wolf when events are not favouring them. Police should properly investigate.not only Lai’s allegation but also that of PDP who alleges that APC thugs are killing their supporters.

  • the_adviser

    I am waiting to hear Lai Mohammed say there are thugs in his son’s constituency.

    Quite very fortunate for Nigerians to have rejected the re-election bid of president Ebele Jonathan,refuses to change his dirty,
    untrustworthy and doubtful attitude with fresh N10 billion naira he gave to Obanikoro and Jimmy Agbaje and other PDP chieftains to manipulate and bribe voters in order for his political party,PDP to win in Lagos State,as similar funds were provided for election rigging and manipulation by PDP in Rivers State as well as Ondo State.Mr Ebele Jonathan remain very incompetent,incapable and non-credibile towards the end of sojourn in public offices.
