…It’s total falsehood – ACN
The ruling Labour Party (LP) in Ondo State yesterday said it has uncovered moves by the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) to unleash maximum terror on Ondo State and turn it into a theatre of war ahead of the October 20 gubernatorial election.”
LP’s Director of Publicity, Mr. Koye Odogiyan in a statement in Akure yesterday alleged that the opposition party had procured N200m worth of arms and ammunition with which various attacks are intended to be unleashed on the state to prevent a conducive atmosphere for the election.
Calling on the law enforcement agents to as a matter of urgency investigate the activities of the party and its agents who are planning to unleash terror on the state, the Labour Party also hinted at a strategic meeting where details of the plan were discussed.
But in a swift reaction, The Akeredolu Campaign Organisation, ACO, through its Director of Media, Publicity and Strategy, Idowu Ajanaku said the accusation is “a total falsehood which is in tandem with the character of the drowning LP.
“It is also a fact that it is the LP who has been unleashing violent attacks on members of the opposition parties in the state. We believe that the LP is only trying to practise elementary subversive techniques.
“It is the LP thugs that attacked the Chieftains of ACN during Late Adebayo Adefarati memorial lecture in Akure, they attacked Akeredolu convoy after the State primaries, they attacked him during campaign in Okeluse; they have attacked our members in Akure during wards meeting in Lafe, Ijoka Area of Akure and at Oka Akoko.
