AblazeFormer Governor, sitting senator and kidnapper cum Assassin-In-Chief, Mr Godswill Obot Akpabio has ordered the burning and attack on buses conveying sensitive electoral materials by Independence Electoral Commission (INEC) officials in Obot Akara on Saturday. Akpabio who has been chanting war songs during the campaign season all through, as well as his most notorious violence-induced cliché, ” Warsaw, saw war and war saw Warsaw.” is believed to be the mastermind of the dastardly act. An eye witness, Joe Uko Idung, told our reporters. The officials boarding the burnt cars sustained gruesome injuries and burns critical to their lives.
Senator Akpabio who decamped from the People Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC) as he was being hounded by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) for fraud and theft of money to the tune of N900 billion is trying to install an APC candidate, Mr. Nsima Ekere as governor, a man who was his Deputy Governor but forced to resign in 2012 when he was facing corruption, assassination and theft charges.
In the interim, the PDP has condemned the violent attack and blamed it on APC and Chief Godswill Akpabio for both incendiary comment and deliberate order given to hoodlums sympathetic to APC to launch the attack.In a press statement signed by the State PDP Director, Public Communications, Divine Mandate Campaign Organization, Otuekong Emmanuel Ibiok said the attack is an attempt by Akpabio and his APC hatchetmen to portray Akwa Ibom State as a violent state in order to call for election postponement to enable them to bring in mobile policemen and military to take over the state during the election which will give room for intimidation and rigging.”This action corroborates our earlier disclosure that the APC plans to sponsor violent criminal operations that could enable its poorly orchestrated script for postponing the elections in Akwa Ibom State,” Ibok said
Eleven buses hired by INEC in readiness for the postponed election of Saturday were all together touched by the APC hoodlums.
