This is coming on the heels of the assassination of one of its members,
Hon Sotonye Bobmanuel, a serving councilor in Akuku-Toru Local Government

are still being held captive, the PDP in a statement by Jerry Needam,
Special Adviser on Media to the State Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah said this
is nothing short of a calculated plot by political opponents to provoke
the party and ignite crisis in the State.
It's now crystal clear, the Statement remarks why these agents of
disharmony and destruction were hell-bent on seeing the former
Commissioner of Police, Mbu Joseph Mbu transferred out of the State.

unfortunate acts of lawlessness in the State.

State since no one person or group has a monopoly of violence”, the PDP
