In his reaction, the state Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Banji Okunomo, who condemned the detention of the PDP youth leaders, said the plan of the Police in connivance with the APC-led Federal government is to create panic and make Ondo State look politically unsafe for the people of the state.

The party has therefore called on the Police to stop harassing its members and release those in its detention.
