24 May 2016, 12:30

Abuja - The Nigeria Police on Monday said intelligence report indicates that some aggrieved factional leaders and members of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) have perfected plans to engage thugs to disrupt public peace and security in Abuja.

The Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, said in a statement signed by its Force Public Relations Office, ACP Olabisi Kolawole, and made available to the media in Abuja that any acts geared towards disrupting the peace in Abuja will be firmly dealt with.

The statement said: “The plan of the brains behind this development is to infiltrate Abuja and attack the National Headquarters of the Peoples’ Democratic Party with intent to forcefully occupy the facility.

“Towards perfecting this criminality, credible Police sources confirm that the actors will mobilise into Abuja with effect from Monday 23rd May 2016 and they intend to march through major streets in Abuja before proceeding to the PDP Secretariat to manifest their intention.

“Consequently, the IG has directed the deployment of police assets 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 is stabilised.”
