PDP demands release of party spokesman inciting violence
Ologbondiyan said that the party was concerned over the alleged arrest and detention of Bako by the Department of State Services (DSS) since last weekend, describing it as unwarranted.
He said that the party was aware that Bako’s arrest was a prelude to the alleged planned clampdown of PDP campaign officials to instil fear in the people.
“We want the Buhari-led Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to note that their plot, as well as the continued detention of Bako, is setting the stage for a vehement resistance by the people, which is capable of triggering crisis and disrupting the fragile peace in Kaduna State.
“The PDP, therefore, demand the immediate and unconditional release of Bako by the DSS without hurt or further harassment.
Ologbondiyan said that the PDP had also been informed of plots to track and detain the party’s critical stakeholders in other parts of the country, so as to put them out of circulation before and during the general elections.
He said the party completely rejected the ongoing clampdown, unlawful arrest and detention of its officials and members in various parts of the country by the APC-led government ahead of the general elections.
“This is highly provocative and a direct invitation to anarchy and a political crisis that is capable of derailing our democratic order.”
Ologbondiyan, who is also the Director, Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, urged the National Peace Committee to note and speak out against the total negation of the spirit and letters of the peace accord.
