Group alleges plan to clamp down on Kwara APC

Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara

A group, loyal to the Kwara State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, the Kwara APC Advocacy Group, has alleged that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, plans to clamp down on APC leaders ahead of February’s elections.

The group accused the PDP in Kwara State of planning to manipulate the Nigeria Police and other security agencies, relying on federal might, to arrest and intimidate APC leaders.

The APC group stated this on Monday, in a statement signed by its Director Kayode Jimoh.

“We have gathered that the PDP plans to use the police to pick up our stakeholders just before the elections like they did during the Ekiti elections last year. Faced by fear of defeat at all levels in Kwara State during the general elections, the opposition PDP has perfected plans to harass our members through police intimidation, threats and wicked deception. We understand the PDP has compiled a hit list of our members who will be arrested as part of a sinister campaign of intimidation,” read the statement.

The APC group also accused the PDP of planning to impersonate heads of security agencies through phone calls warning its supports to go underground to avoid arrest ahead of the elections.

It called on the people of Kwara State not to be intimidated by the PDP, while urging the security agencies to resist being compromised. It further warned the PDP against violence and intimidation to avoid “destabilization in Kwara State before, during and after the general elections.”
