APC berates PDP after burning of Chidi's house

23 September 2016, 19:00

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the burning of the home of former leader of Rivers State House of Assembly, Dr Lloyd Chidi, in Akpabu, allegedly by People’s Democratic Party (PDP) members.

The alleged arson was reported on Friday, coming at a time relations between the two major parties in the state are thorny.

“This act of lawlessness by the PDP Government in Rivers State is no longer acceptable to us and should be condemned by all and sundry,” said Davies Ikanya, Rivers APC chairman.

The party nonetheless appealed for calm.

“We wish to urge and plead with the entire Rivers State to remain calm, peaceful and resolute in their determination to drive away the remnants of PDP from our dear state during the forthcoming rerun elections by voting only for APC candidates,” Ikanya said.

Ikanya blamed the attack on Lloyd’s property on the Grassroots Development Initiative (GDI), said to be the militant arm of Rivers State PDP.

He meanwhile appealed to security forces to investigate the violence ad the recent killing of two of its personnel in Omoku.

“Police must not relent until criminals and PDP vandals are fished out and chased away from our dear state.”
