Ahead of the Saturday’s governorship election in Bayelsa State, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has alerted security agencies and the general public on the secret release of about 100 awaiting trial inmates from Okaka Prison in the state capital, Yenagoa, by the state government.

The APC also alleged of the plot by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-led government in the state to lure voters with N20,000 each, deploy fake police and military uniform personnel, clone Permanent Voters Card (PVCs) among others to rig the governorship election.

According to a statement made available to journalists in Abuja on Monday, APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, said Bayelsa State govvernor, Seriake Dickson, recently ordered the secret release of 100 inmates awaiting trial from Okaka Prisons to work for the PDP during the Saturday’s governorship election.

The APC deputy spokesperson said apart from the intelligence report gathered, some members of the inner circle of governor Dickson’s camp have also volunteered some of the information on how the PDP is planning to rig the Saturday’s governorship election in the state.

Nabena said: “A member of the Bayelsa Governorship Special Purpose Election Committee (SPEC), which was set up and secretly working for Governor Seriake Dickson, resigned recently from the committee and has reported the governor’s plans to rig the election to us.

“So, I hereby alert the general public and security agencies to the revelations by the former member of the election committee.

“It should be noted that fake Navy, Army and Police uniform personnel have been procured to kit political thugs recruited by the PDP-led government in state. The Navy uniform personnel have already procured speedboats that will be used by the thugs on the waterways.

“We are also in the known that Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to be used with the 47 stolen card readers are being cloned massively at the government house.

“A certain amount of money is also said to have been stashed in government house for vote buying. The plan is to lure voters with N20,000 each, through the PDP agents.” (New Telegraph)
