The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has accused Congress of all progressives (APC) of conspiring with security agencies to attack the opposition party in the state of Kogi.

The PDP in a statement from its spokesman, Kola Ologbodinyan, said the APC was conspiring for Governor Yahaya Bello to be re-elected by any means.

The party also asked the army, the police and the State Department of Services (DSS) to report the kidnapping of their local Okene government president, Musa Adelabu, whose kidnapping was presumably from armed men dressed in military fatigue.

The statement reads: “This situation has heightened apprehensions of high-level partisan conspiracy to use some compromised security operatives against the opposition in Kogi state, in a desperate bid to foist the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the failed Governor Yahaya Bello on the people of Kogi state.

“PDP charges the hierarchy of the Army, Police and the Department of State Services (DSS) to speak out on the abduction of its Okene local government Chairman, Musa Adelabu, by gunmen reportedly dressed in military fatigue.

“The party expressed worries that three days after his abductors reportedly dared his family members that they were acting on orders from above, there had been no trace of his whereabouts.

“Moreover, it is completely unacceptable that since the public outcry by our party and members of his family over his violent abduction and despite the demands for his release, the high commands of the military, the police and the DSS have failed to speak out on the matter.
