Odili: PDP Insists On Oshiomhole’s Arrest

Published

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Thursday expressed concern about the delay in the arrest of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole over what it claimed was his role in openly inciting the attack on Justice Mary Odili over the Supreme Court’s Judgment on the Bayelsa State governorship election.

The PDP in a statement said that was clear that the attack on Justice Odili by those it described as APC thugs was part of the party’s plot to cow the judiciary to do only its bidding in delivering judgments on cases involving the PDP and its members.

“The APC should know that Nigerians are not deceived by the desperate effort by its leadership to politicize the attack on Justice Odili by making flimsy and baseless allegations against the PDP, in a failed bid to divert public attention from their culpability in the attack.

“Nigerians know that the APC masterminded the attack on Justice Odili, using the same agents that coordinated the attacks on the residence of Governor Duoye Diri, the burning of PDP secretariat in Bayelsa and violent attacks on Radio Bayelsa by APC thugs.

“The PDP thus, insists that the delay in arresting Oshiomhole for questioning, after it raised the alarm last Thursday and even after hard evidence indicts him and the APC, only goes to validate public apprehensions of a huge collusion with certain agents of the Buhari Presidency to intimidate and annex the judiciary.

“The PDP describes as distressing that the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had failed to arrest Oshiomhole after he openly instigated his party’s thugs against the Supreme Court and even declared that no governor would be sworn-in in Bayelsa, in defiance of the judgment of the Supreme Court, leading to the attacks.

“The PDP charges the Police not to succumb to the antics of the APC but to immediately bring Oshiomhole to book on the attack on Justice Odili as well as the residence of Governor Duoye Diri and PDP secretariat in Bayelsa.

“Furthermore, our party charges the judiciary not to be deterred by the APC, which seeks to subjugate it to do its bidding on cases involving the PDP, our party members and other Nigerians perceived to be enemies of the APC administration.’
