The All Progressives Congress (APC) has raised the alarm over the safety of its National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, and his family after his residence in Abuja was raided in the early hours of today by yet unknown invaders.

APC National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said in a statement issued in Lagos that while hoping that a police investigation will unravel what happened, it is either those who attacked the residence at 1:30 a.m. are robbers or assassins.

Alhaji Mohammed said while Chief Oyegun was away attending a previously unscheduled meeting in Abuja when the invaders struck, his wife who was at home was left deeply traumatised by the raid

According to him, “The facts of the raid as available so far point to a sinister motive. For example, only Chief Oyegun’s room was ransacked in the whole house. Common sense dictates that if the invaders were robbers, they would have ransacked the whole house in search of money and other valuables which they might have believed were in the residence

“The invaders, two burly men, removed the window burglar bars to gain access to the residence from the back, and then made straight for the bedroom of our National Chairman. Police security was in place at the residence when the incident happened.”

APC said while it does not know who was behind the raid, it is worth noting that the angry rhetoric and vitriolic personality attacks that have been directed at the opposition by the top leadership of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and their spokesmen have heightened tension and put the lives of opposition politicians at risk, ahead of the February 2015 elections.

It expressed gratitude to God for saving the lives of the APC National Chairman and his wife, wondering what would have happened if the Chairman had been home at the time of the raid.
