Abuja - The People's Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) has tapes of terrorist attacks on innocent Nigerians in its possession.

In a statement, PDP said the rival party planned to air it to achieve its "selfish purpose" using the tapes.

“Indeed, upon the release of the tapes, the APC must explain to Nigerians how it got hold of them. We ask, is the APC working in collaboration with terrorist cells, who have been unleashing violence against innocent citizens of our dear nation," the ruling party said.

"Are these the same terrorist groups that earlier nominated the APC Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari to represent them in the dialogue between them and the Federal Government, it added.

It said Nigerians should be worried over the connections the APC might have with insurgent groups especially coming on the heels of recent support expressed to their presidential candidate by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND).

“We wish to clarify that this is not an attack on the APC as a party but rather a serious issue that boarders on national security.

"We therefore call on all Nigerians and lovers of democracy to note this as the APC embarks on a campaign to attempt to gain directly from the security challenges facing our nation,” PDP said.

Thousands have died in recent years as a result of terror perpetrated by the Boko Haram.
