The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it had uncovered a plot by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, to disrupt the campaign rally for Muhammadu Buhari, slated for January 14, in Ado-Ekiti.
In a statement by its state Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatubosun, the party said it had incontrovertible evidence that the PDP had mapped out plans to unleash terror on APC members and supporters by using fake soldiers imported from neighbouring countries to be mixed with local miscreants to cause mayhem.
“The local miscreants are to help identify APC members and their supporters to be attacked at check points and thereby prevent them from entering the state. The Plan B is to deck PDP thugs in APC uniforms to shoot APC members coming to the rally as PDP did in Rivers State,” Olatunbosun alleged.
He reminded Nigerians that Governor Ayo Fayose has been boasting that like PDP did in Akure, he will also not allow APC to hold its campaign and ‘Walk for Change’ rally in Ekiti State. “But we urge our teeming supporters not to be intimidated because Fayose does not have a monopoly of violence. Any attempt to prevent or disrupt our rallies shall be fiercely resisted,” he said.
Olatubosun therefore urged the Army and police to be professional in the handling of political activities in the state and should not allow themselves to be used to intimidate anybody ahead of the February 14 presidential election.
“Ekiti people, like other Nigerians, have made up their minds to effect a change in the leadership of the country for good governance for national growth and their individual development. No force can deter them from achieving this noble and historical feat,” Olatubosun said.
In a swift reaction to the allegation, the PDP described it as ridiculous and face saving, as it was common knowledge that the people of the state had rejected the APC.
“They know that the people of the state will not welcome their team. They know that as the people rejected them during the June 21 poll, they have even seen more of APC’s deceit and would not accord them any warm welcome,” the state Secretary of the PDP, Tope Aluko said.

“Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.
Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.
The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own.
my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue
we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price
I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you
While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”
Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.
If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”

Lagos youths have set the family house of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on fire.
