The People Democratic Party, yesterday, reacted to the arrest of its deputy national chairman, Uche Secondus by the operatives of the Economic and Crimes Financial Commission.
Reacting to Secondus’ arrest, the PDP criticized the federal government’s “oppressive and unfair treatments” of its key leaders.
In a statement on Wednesday, the party said the arrest was part of a grand script by the All Progressives Congress-led government to decimate the opposition.
“We are 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,” the party said in the statement signed by Victor Kwon, its National Legal Adviser.
“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.”
