Police warn PDP factions against fanning violence in Abuja

23 May 2016, 21:28

Abuja - Inspector general of Police, Solomon Arase, has warned aggrieved People’s Democratic Party members against perpetrating mayhem in Abuaja, particularly at the opposition party’s National headquarters.

This follows intelligence said to be at the disposal of the Force indicating some aggrieved factional leaders and members had perfected plans to engage thugs from across the country to join them in threatening public peace and security in the capital city.

This is reportedly in sequel to the on-going intra-party leadership crisis in the party and further fallout of the recent political engagements of the party.

Olabisi Kolawale, police spokesperson, said the plan was to infiltrate Abuja and attack the PDP National Headquarters.

Consequently, Ararse has directed the deployment of police to secure the PDP Secretariat and protect the staff until the threat to internal security that is being occasioned by the intra-party crisis within the PDP was stabilised.

“Olawale said the police action was a proactive initiative in furtherance to the statutory mandate of the Nigeria Police to prevent breakdown in law and order and protect lives and property.

“The Inspector General of Police, however, warns all actors in the crisis as well as their loyalists to refrain from any act that may threaten public order as the Police shall deal promptly, firmly and decisively with such persons or group in line with their legal obligations.”
