2019 POLLS: APC Plans Violence, Mass Arrest, Indefinite Detention Against PDP Members - OSUN PDP Alleged

The Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State has raised alarm on what it called, harassment, intimidation, mass arrest and indefinite detention of its members by the All Progressives Congress with connivance of the men of the Nigerian police ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The statement was made available to the press by the state chairman of the party, Hon. Olasoji Adagunodo today, in Osogbo, Osun State.

According to Adagunodo, "they have begun the operation in Ila Orangun, in Ila local government area of the state."

"Reliable information confirmed that they went to the house of a PDP member with  posters of APC and started pasting it and at the same time brought in police who came into the house to make arrest of those who were holding meetings that they were disturbing the people pasting the posters, they took them to the station and locked them up" Adagunodo explained.

One of such incidence according to the PDP Chairman is the arrest,detention and refusal of bail on arguments over pasting of posters by  Magistrate Aluko,saying "Ila is volatile"

Adagunodo said it is becoming too obvious that the threat of the APC about a week ago that they will use the Police and the Judiciary to harass and detain members of his party, before the elections and keep them until after the elections is been carried out.

According to the party chairman those  arrested and are now being remanded  are AJIBOYE LATEEF
BASIRU OYENIYI. All from Ila local government.

Adagunodo said the party is aware of the said  secret meeting where it was decided that they will use biased members of the judiciary to carry out their clandestine moves.

Hon. Adagunodo, however, called on the Chief Judge to call  members of the Judiciary under her to order and maintain their neutrality at all time.

The PDP therefore, calls on the ruling party to call its members to order,because "no one has monopoly of violence or harassment".

"We as a party are peace lovers and the love for our state has made us to maintain our calm in the face of this brazing robbery of our mandate and the arrogant grandstanding of the shameless vote robbers" Adagunodo concluded.
