Lagos - The People's Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate for Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has distanced himself from threats members of the public who did not vote in his favour this weekend would be killed.
His campaign team thus denounced as ugly, incidents witnessed in Aba, the state capital on Friday morning, where caskets were been dropped at various places to signify death to opposing voters.
"Dr Okezie is by this means dissociating himself from such dastardly act, and also inform Abians and the general public that such is the handiwork of the opposition who have shown their desperations in various ways since the beginning of the governorship contest," Enyinnaya Appolos, his spokesman said.

"Dr Okezie is however assuring Aba people who have always supported him not to be deterred by the intimidation from Alex Otti and his party, APGA, urging Ndi Aba and Abians in the wards and polling units where the supplementary election will hold on Saturday to come out and vote him as they did on April 11."
Ikpeazu also urged the Aba business community to go about their lawful business without any fear of violations.
