A Call for Equity and Justice: Those caught with firearms should be charged as such!
The PDP has cried out over a plot to set free five alleged thugs associated with a member of the House of Representatives who were caught with sophisticated weapons at the point of the postponement of the election.
The party in a statement issued by its spokesman, Chris Nehikhare cried out that the men were charged to court and admitted to bail without a mention of the weapons they were allegedly caught with.
“This travesty of justice is the most offensive to us against the backdrop that our members have been relentlessly harassed, arrested and charged to court on trumped up charges and in some cases, murder.
“It beats the imagination, therefore that the police would be creating a leeway for potential felons to escape justice. We cannot but impute political bias in this matter because the suspects are members of the ruling APC.
