Politics Bayelsa: APC Condemns PDP For Attacking its New Secretariat Barely 24hrs After its Inauguration

According to Daily Post, the newly commissioned secretariat of the All Progressives Congress, APC, which was unveiled on Wednesday in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, was attacked at about 2 am on Thursday.

Reacting, the Rivers State Chapter of the APC in person of its chairman Davies Ikanya condemned the incident, accusing the Bayelsa State Government of being behind the attack.

“According to reports from our brothers in Yenagoa, barely 24 hours after the APC State Secretariat was opened, the PDP-led government in the state sent plain-cloth police men to remove the bill board and the flags of the party and also threaten to bomb the State Secretariat if the APC leadership fails to stop operating in the state,” it said.

He described as an affront on the nation’s fledgling democracy, any attack on peaceful citizens, alleging that Dickson and the PDP had become jittery because of the exodus of the members of the Bayelsa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to APC.

“This is a sad and very unfortunate development which should not be associated with any decent administration,” he added.

But Bayelsa State government has distanced itself from the incident, denying even being aware that the APC had unveiled a new secretariat in the state capital.
