Yenagoa - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State on Thursday accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of harbouring kidnappers, reports The Nation.
The party was reacting to an allegation by the PDP that the APC was responsible for Wednesday’s abduction of Fynman Wilson, the special adviser on Political Matters to Governor Seriake Dickson.
The party told the PDP to look inwards for the incessant kidnapping across the state.

Merlin Daniel, the state’s Secretary of APC, noted that the kidnappers were not just members of the PDP but were also holding political offices in the state
He said the kidnapping of Wilson could have arisen from the statements credited to former President Goodluck Jonathan at the Dickson’s formal declaration for a second term.
According to him, Jonathan’s support for Dickson could have compelled supporters of aggrieved aspirants to engage in violent protest.
Daniel noted that the APC was too busy preparing for its primaries and too responsible to engage in criminality.
