Makarfi-led PDP asks police to arrest Sheriff

07 July 2016, 14:37

Abuja - The Ahmed Makarfi-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Inspector General of Police to immediately order the arrest and prosecution of a factional chairman of the party,  Ali Modu Sheriff.

A statement issued in Abuja by its spokesman, Dayo Adeyeye, said the purported issuance of certificate by Sheriff, after the juudgment of Monday, July 4, 2016, was utter disobedience and disrespect to court judgment and should not be treated with levity.

The statement reads: We are shocked at the attitude of the former National Chairman of our great Party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff who has become an authority in the Country with flagrant disobedience of the Nigerian Constitution, the Electoral Act and the PDP Constitution without being arrested or detained by security agencies. Is he above the law? If we may ask.”

Justice Abdullah Liman’s Judgment on the 4th of July, 2016 is superior to all other court rulings, ex-parte orders or interlocutory injunctions procured by Mr. Sheriff.

“You will recall that Senator Sheriff in collaboration with some APC Governors and members invaded our Party Secretariat on Monday June 13, 2016 laying claims to a non-existing Court Order; and he has started again after a competent Court issued a Judgment upholding the decision of our National Convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers State which constituted the PDP National Caretaker Committee to pilot the affairs of the Party for 90 days, and to conduct another Convention that will elect new officers of the Party.

Following this, we are calling on the Police to do the needful by arresting Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, his co-travelers and Hon. Matthew Iduoriyekemwen for disobeying Court Judgment”.
