Ekiti PDP Accuses APC Of Planning Yuletide Attack

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of planning to unleash terror on the people during the yuletide.
The PDP alleges that the APC plans to attack major towns and cause disaffection among the people.
The state PDP Secretary, Tope Aluko, claimed that the attack on Ado-Ekiti Prisons and banks in the state were pointers that the APC planned to “unleash thugs on the state”.
He alleged that APC leaders had arranged to mislead the public on the identities of the criminals so that they could point fingers at the government.

“We have monitored the activities of these APC leaders in recent times and discovered that they don’t have any good plan for the government and people at all, going by the reports emanating from their secret meetings,” he said.
The PDP secretary called on the people to hold the APC responsible for any breakdown of law and order in the state, while also calling on security agencies to be more proactive.
But the APC accused the PDP of playing the old trick of blaming the opposition for what it plans to carry out, adding that the people know that the ruling party has the propensity for violence.
In a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, the APC described the allegation as diversionary, accusing the PDP of keeping escaped prisoners in the Government House to unleash terror on the opposition.
The APC spokesman said the PDP primaries for the legislature were marred by violence, adding that they were a foretaste of what the people of Ekiti should expect.
Olatunbosun said: “The style of his government is to ask the governor’s aides to cry on the rooftops that some people in the opposition are planning to cause trouble and blame it on his government while in actual fact, the government is the author of the trouble.
“There are several instances, the most striking one being the assassination of Dr Ayo Daramola on August 14, 2006.
“On August 12, 2006, the same PDP claimed in a statement that a security report had indicated that a popular politician would be killed in Ekiti State and the government would be blamed for the assassination. Two days after, on August 14, 2006, a popular politician, Dr Ayo Daramola, was assassinated in Ijan-Ekiti.
“We raised the alarm recently about the jail break escapees reportedly being lodged in the Government House, while the policemen who helped Fayose to unleash terror on the opposition between 2003 and 2006 have been recalled to begin raids in the homes of the opposition.
“We have it on good authority that these special policemen are to work with the escaped prisoners lodged in the Government House to unleash terror on the opposition.
“They have so far paid night visits to the homes of six members of the House of Assembly, but their targets were lucky to be away from home.
“We call on Nigerians to help ask TK Aluko, the author of the statement alleging violence by APC, what his position is in government that he is being guarded 24 hours by one of the police hatchet men, recalled to Ekiti, Usman Shaba?
“The allegation by PDP is diversionary and the party should be held responsible for any mayhem in the state. No one is deceived by this tactic.”
