PDP Laments Clampdown On Its Leaders ….Decries Continued Detention of Secondus


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lamented the oppressive and unfair treatments against its key leaders by the Federal Government.
The National Legal Adviser Barr. Victor Kwon stated in a statement that the party has alerted the nation that the arrest and detention of its Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is part of the grand script by the APC-led Federal Government to decimate the opposition.

Barr Kwon disclosed that the party is also aware that plans have been perfected by the Federal Government to arrest and detain the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio and other leaders of the party on imaginary charges. “Indeed, intelligence available to the party shows that the Federal Government, using its various agencies, is bent on destroying any opposition to the ruling party as all indications show that the government is more interested in humiliating the PDP than fighting corruption, he lamented.

He added: “Finally, we state that this war on the PDP and its leaders has indeed gone too far. It has now become a mockery of democratic practice
