By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Former ruling party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is complicit in the activities of armed bandits and terrorists across the country.
The PDP’s allegation was contained in a statement issued on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in which the party said that the APC was fraternizing with armed groups terrorizing the country and trying to justify their heinous crimes.
Ologbondiyan further stated that the APC’s penchant for slamming any person or group that criticises the activities of the armed groups maiming, kidnapping and killing Nigerians, was evidence of its clandestine support for their activities, adding that its refusal to criticize the activities of these violent groups was further proof of its support for their evil deeds.
“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the revelations trailing the abduction and release of 600 students by bandits have further exposed the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a party in league with bandits, insurgents and terrorists ravaging our nation,” the statement partly read.
“The PDP says such revelations further explain why the APC has been acting as the mouthpiece of bandits, rationalizing killings and kidnapping, showing express sympathy to terrorists, refusing to condemn acts of terrorism but attacking any person or groups that dare to criticize the activities of these bandits or demand the unconditional release of abductees.”
