Listen to article

he Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has condemned in the

strongest possible terms the unleashing of provocative violence and mayhem

on the
Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, Senator Babafemi Ojudu and

members of
the APC in Ekiti State by the police which resulted in the death of a

member of the
party.
The party equally lambasted the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP,

Olisa Metuh for attempting to justify this clear case of brigandage by the

police on
the members of the APC, warning that the party will resist every attempt by

desperate politicians who have wasted the country's potentials to force

themselves
on Nigerians in 2015.
In a release in Lagos, signed by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of

the APC, Joe
Igbokwe, the party sees the attack as the height of provocation by a

failed party
that sees the police as it's hatchet dogs in their desperate efforts to

stay in
power. It warns that Nigerians will not sit idly by and watch the police

and the PDP
continue intimidating innocent Nigerians so as to continue stealing the

electoral
mandates of Nigerians for the purpose of continuing the ruination that has

crumbled
the country in fifteen years of perilous PDP government of the country.

'Nigerians remember that sometime ago, a National Leader of the APC has

rightly said
that the PDP is in alliance with the police and INEC and that unholy

alliance has
accounted why these institutions see themselves as malleable instruments

in the
inordinate desire of a failed party like the PDP to continue clinging on

to power.
We see the action of the police as then eight of provocation not only to the

institution of the governor but the entire constitution, democracy, rule

of law and
indeed by the entire Ekiti State and it's peace loving people.

'The haste with which the hare brained PDP Publicity Secretary rushed to

approve
this brigandage and direct affront on the constitution of the land proves

to ll that
the police was employed by the PDP to unleash violence on an Executive

Governor of a
state. We are in no doubt that this ranks as the way the PDP wants to

employ to
retain power when it had completely ran down the country and made the

country an
object of ridicule before the international community.

'We see the unprovoked attack on Governor Fayemi, Senator Ojudu and

members of the
APC in Ekiti, coming days after the military was employed to attack some

newspapers
in broad daylight, as another act of gangsterism which had served the PDP

well in
manipulating the electoral system to its unfair benefits, even as such

wholesome
manipulation has left Nigeria wrecked, destroyed and prostrate.

'While we warn the PDP to prepare to march on blood in its effort retain

power at
all costs, we will not hesitate to tell the blood thirsty members of the

PDP and
their police attack dogs that Nigerians are ready and willing to meet them

frontally
in our bid to reverse the progressive destruction of the country through

bad and
corrupt leadership the PDP has been promoting in the past fifteen years.

'We call on the Inspector General of Police to quickly bring the

perpetrators of
that heinous crime against the constitution and Ekiti people to immediate

justice.
We demand the immediate arrest and trail of the particular police officer

from
Bayelsa State who was commissioned to lead this provocative attack and we

call for
an open enquiry to ensure that all those behind this act of treason are

brought to
justice.'
