About two weeks to the Kogi State governorship election, the secretary of the Media and Publicity Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Campaign Council, Dr Tom Ohikere has alleged the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) of importing and arming thugs ahead of the poll.

He said that the importation of the thugs is to cause mayhem and to harm leading figures in the APC campaign.
He said this in a statement made available to newsmen on Friday.
According to him: “Report reaching us have it that the PDP in their desperation have resorted to extreme measures, such as recruiting, importing and arming thugs from neighboring states of Nasarawa, Toto in particular, with which they intend to prosecute their campaign; to unleash terror and intimidate the people of Kogi State. These thugs in large numbers are smuggled into the state under the cover of darkness.
“These thugs have been seen at their campaigns, where they have been providing policing functions, engaging in reckless actions, harassing the people and undermining legitimately constituted authorities.
“We also have it that myself, the campaign DG, Senator Smart Adeyemi and others are on the top of their list.
“These hoodlums are here to intimidate, perpetrate violence and disrupt things. That is what they have been paid for.
“I am not surprised. We have said it before. The PDP have been talking of fire for fire, in wholesome disregard of the rules of the game and the spirit of sportsmanship.
“We are calling on our supporters to exercise restraint, but continue to remain vigilant and call the attention of the authorities when such situation becomes apparent.”
He called on the police authorities and other law enforcement agencies to be on top of their game to pre-empt and arrest the hoodlums to forestall the breakdown of law and order.
“The PDP have been casting aspersion on the whole process and blaming state institutions, here and there. All these are just distractions so that they can execute their clandestine machinations.
“But, we are calling on the police and other security agencies to do the needful and investigate, apprehend and arraign where necessary. The desperate PDP wants to return Kogi State to the insecurity of their past rule,” he added.
