Naija News reports that the party has expressed worries a planned attack on some selected supporters of the party.
This comes in less than one week to the 2019 elections.
A statement made available to Naija News by the spokesperson of the APC Campaign Organisation, AbdulAzeez Olatunde, on Sunday, said that the warning became necessary in the view of the intelligence report at its disposal that the opposition planned to unleash mayhem on the APC from Monday.
In his words, Olatunde said; “We are using this opportunity to raise the alarm over planned attack on our leaders in the next few days. Intelligence report at our disposal suggests that these desperate opposition parties plan to attack our campaign rallies to carry out this clandestine plan.
“The government of APC had since 2011 brought back the peace and security that had eluded the state for several years. We will, therefore, not sit back and allow overzealous opposition party members to take us back to those inglorious days. Violence is an ill wind that blows nobody any good. Now is the time for them to stop these mindless attacks. We have been restraining our members from reprisal attacks and such gesture should not be misconstrued for cowardice. Politics should not be reduced a do-or-die affair. If you are sure that your party and your candidate have what it takes to win elections you will not resort to this barbaric idea of maiming and killing opposition figures”.
