The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of unleashing violence on Nigerians during Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections.
The PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, alleged that the ruling party was killing innocent Nigerians, snatching and burning ballot papers during the polls.
The party, however, said nothing would break the resolve of the people to vote out the APC-led federal government.
“The unleashing of violence is the major part of the script by the APC to intimidate Nigerians and disrupt the election in their bid to enforce the now failed President Buhari’s self-succession plot. “President Buhari and the APC leadership must know that they are directly responsible for the killings in Rivers State, the violent snatching of ballot box and burning of electoral materials in Lagos and various other states where compromised security agents were used to directly interfere in the electoral process.
“In Lagos State, the world watched in amazement as security agents aided APC thugs to invade polling centres, disrupt electoral process, manhandle voters, destroy and burn electoral materials, including ballot papers and boxes.
“In Rivers state, voters were shot and killed by agents of the APC in their desperation to manipulate the elections. Our party is compiling a list of all infractions and the killings as well as securing the identities of all individuals who played roles in these the atrocities,” the PDP stated.
