Probe PDP’s alleged foiled attack on Atiku, APC urges DSS

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked the Department of State Services (DSS) and the police to investigate allegations by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) that it sponsored the foiled plot to attack the residence of its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in Yola.

The appeal is coming barely 24 hours after Debo Ologunagba, the spokesman for the PDP, raised an alarm that the Adamawa residence of Atiku was invaded by gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram.

Ologunagba added that the alleged sponsored attack was however foiled by men of the Adamawa State Police Command.

A suspect, Jubrila Mohammed, was arrested in connection with the attack in the early hours of Sunday.

The PDP spokesman also wondered if the attack had any link with the ruling APC which he accused of allegedly threatening to cause chaos if the outcome of the ongoing election tribunal did not go its way.

Reacting in a statement issued on Tuesday night, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Felix Morka, described the allegation as a continuation of the PDP’s ‘vacuous and mindless campaign of calumny.’

Morka further reiterated that following the crushing defeat suffered by the PDP at the last presidential election, the party had resorted to spewing lies and falsehood as an obsessive preoccupation.
