PDP planning to attack us, says Ekiti APC

Report gathered that the  All Progressives Congress‎ in Ekiti State has raised the alarm over alleged plans by members of the Peoples Democratic Party to attack its members and supporters on Tuesday if the Supreme Court judgment does not favour Governor Ayodele Fayose‎.
Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatubosun, said in a statement on Monday that the party had uncovered plans to burn down houses of APC leaders and cause bodily harm to members and supporters.
Olatubosun said, “Since the Ekitigate tape emerged, PDP has become more desperate in its actions over where the pendulum will swing in the impending judgment. They have mapped out elaborate strategies to attack our members if the judgment does not favour the governor.
“In Ikere-Ekiti, for instance, they have threatened‎ to burn down the homes of two members of the House of Assembly in Ikere Local Government, Yomi Daramola and Adu Sunday. One Ejila and Ibrahim are said to be the arrowheads of the planned attacks.
“Just today (Monday), PDP members were attacking the street sweepers in Ikere-Ekiti, accusing them of not voting for PDP in the weekend election while in Ado-Ekiti, the home of APC candidate for the last weekend House of Assembly ‎election, Sola Olofin, was attacked. Even they are planning to attack the home of another Assembly candidate, Sola Fatoba.
APC said these attacks were a carryover of the violence during Saturday’s State Assembly election, allegedly marred with ballot snatching and violence.”
Olatubosun called on the security agencies to provide adequate security for APC members while those causing crisis in the state should be arrested.
But the PDP, in its reaction, has described the allegations as another lies from the APC.
The Acting Publicity Secretary, Joseph Adaraniwon, said, “We have no such plans. The results from the recent elections held in the state have shown that the victory of the governor in the election was not a fluke.
