Gwagwalada - The All Nigerian People Party (ANPP) on Monday called for investigation into violent incidences that claimed several lives and property during the last FCT Area Council elections in Abuja.
The FCT ANPP Chairman, Alhaji Abdulmalike Unaman, made the appeal in a statement issued in Gwagwalada.
The party said that investigation, arrest and prosecution of perpetrators of the violence would prevent future occurrence of such mayhem.
It identified the destruction of the incumbent chairman’s house at Dobi and the killing of ANPP supporter at Tungamaje by identified opposition political thugs as incidences that deserved investigation.
The statement condemned some security agencies seen to be bias during elections, adding that it was not in the interest of free and fair election.
"I want to use this opportunity to call on the IGP to direct the FCT Police Command to be less partisan in the discharge of their duties.
"Many unfortunate incidences have occurred before, during and after election in which the police were seen to have taken side with the PDP," the statement said.
The party also expressed dismay over the failure of security agencies to arrest suspects after a robbery incident at Falande Filling Station in Gwagwalada, where cash and other items were reportedly robbed at gun point.
