Bayelsa Violence: Arrest Oshomhole now, PDP tells IGP

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Muhammed to immediately pull in the factional National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, for questioning and prosecution for incitement.
In a press statement made available by the National Publicity Secret of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan says the violence and arson being perpetuated by the APC agents in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state capital, on Friday, was in furtherance of Oshiomhole’s inciting call that no governor would be sworn-in in Bayelsa state, contrary to the judgment of the Supreme Court.

Oshiomole’s statement was a direct call for sedition and violent subversion of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), the statutory authority of the Supreme Court and the mandate of the people of Bayelsa state.

The People’s Democratic Party has urged the people of Bayelsa, the security agencies and Nigerians at large, to hold Oshiomhole responsible and accountable for the violence in Bayelsa state and deal with him accordingly in line with the provisions of our laws.

He said Oshiomhole must be brought to book and stopped from the use of garrulity and clear misuse of language to cause crisis in our country.
