Secondus condemns Nembe killing, assault on Natasha Akpoti in Kogi

- Secondus urged security agencies and their operatives to allow the people of Bayelsa and Kogi states vote their choice in Saturday, November 16, governorship election

The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has called on security agencies in Nigeria to allow the people of Bayelsa and Kogi states vote their choice in Saturday, November 16, governorship election.

Secondus while condemning the needless killing of a resident in Nembe Bayelsa state on Wednesday, November 13, urged security operatives especially the Nigerian Military not to allow themselves into areas that will lower their professional value in the eyes of well-meaning election observers and watchers.

In a statement released by Ike Abonyi, his media adviser, Secondus said the disqualification of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in Bayelsa state should send a message to everyone that God does support the continued bloodletting of innocent citizens.

Secondus said from inception APC knew that they were never wanted in Bayelsa state but continued with the help of operatives to heat up the state to frighten voters out of the ballot box.

"Even before the voting God has shown his mighty hands and cleared the violent prone APC out of the race," Secondus said.

The PDP national chairman said that it would be disgraceful if the nation's military will allow a civilian governor to infiltrate its system by using the institution to intimidate voters at the polls.

Secondus also condemned the harassment of the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Natasha Akpoti, by some thugs allegedly loyal to the APC.

He further urged members of the PDP and party supporters in the two states to refuse to be intimidated by coming out in their numbers to vote and defend their votes.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Natasha Akpoti, had alleged that she was attacked by thugs loyal to the ruling party in Kogi state.

Akpoti said the thugs wearing shirts with GYB, an acronym for Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state, who were present at a political stakeholders meeting organised by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), called her names like a prostitute and pushed her to the floor.
