The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has alleged that members of his party are being intimidated in states controlled by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). 

Reacting to the incident that occurred at the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly where some thugs stormed the House and disrupted sitting, Oshiomhole alleged that the state governor colluded with police officers to intimidate APC members.

 “It is a very disturbing development in a couple of states, where the PDP is misusing the police to undermine the basic democratic rights of APC members in those states where they have governors. This is even as they are the loudest to talk about misusing the police.

“A typical example is what just happened in Akwa Ibom State where the commissioner of police there colluded with the state governor to force APC members out of the state House of Assembly and the Commissioner went beyond the bound to duty to aid and abet what was clearly wrong,” he said.

The national chairman, who made the allegation when speaking to journalists after the meeting of the National Working Committee of the party claimed that the Akwa Ibom State Police Commissioner colluded with the state governor to sack four members of the State Assembly, who defected from the PDP to the APC.

“It is not the business of the police to assist political authority to effect their bias as regards to issues of the House. We have a law and order.

“If a governor wants extra legal assistance with the police, the Commissioner is not meant to oblige but that is what has happened in Akwa Ibom.”
