Yenagoa - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of planning to cause trouble in the state, reports Newmail.
The PDP in a statement on Wednesday alleged that APC members and suspected hoodlums are planning series of violent protests in the order to breach the existing peace in the state.

The party said the aim of the protests was to compel the APC-led Federal Government to declare a state-of- emergency in the state and make it impossible for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to hold the rescheduled election in Southern Ijaw.
According to PDP, the protests will create a stalemate until such a time that Gov. Seriake Dickson’s term would expire.
The party urged the people to take utmost precaution to steer clear of the protesters and guard against any form of molestation that would lead to the breakdown of law and order.
