The former acting chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP ), Uche Secondus, has been arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC).

A source at the EFCC told Channels Television that Mr Secondus received luxury buses worth over N110 million from a person being investigated by the anti graft agency.

The source disclosed that he was picked up from his Abuja home this night.

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lamented “the oppressive and unfair treatments against its key leaders by the Federal Government.

The party alerts the nation that the arrest and detention of its Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus by the EFCC is “part of the grand script by the APC-led Federal Government to decimate the opposition.

“We are also aware that plans have been perfected by the Federal Government to arrest and detain the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio and other leaders of the party on imaginary charges,” a statement by the National Legal Adviser, Barr. Victor Kwon said on Wednesday.

The statement further noted that “Indeed, intelligence available to the party shows that the Federal Government, using its various agencies, is bent on destroying any opposition to the ruling party as all indications show that the government is more interested in humiliating the PDP than fighting corruption.

“Finally, we state that this war on the PDP and its leaders has indeed gone too far. It has now become a mockery of democratic practice.”
