Edo: APC alleges plot by Obaseki to stage kidnap of PDP members, arrest opposition leaders

The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Thursday accused the state Governor, Godwin Obaseki and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of plotting to arrest its leaders over staged kidnappings in the state.

John Mayaki, the Chairman of the APC Media Campaign Council, raised the alarm in a statement he signed and forwarded to DAILY POST.

He alleged that Obaseki and the PDP have concluded plans to fake the kidnap of some identified PDP members across the state and blame the APC for their disappearance.

He said Obaseki is already intimidating the Police to join in the plot by arresting and remanding APC leaders over the staged kidnappings to prevent them from continuing their grassroots mobilization of voters.

The statement read: “We have been made aware of plans by the outgoing Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, and his party, the PDP, to stage kidnappings of some of their members across the state and blame the APC for their disappearance.
