The police image maker was careful not to unveil the content of the report of APGA governorship primaries but added that whoever was interested in knowing  about the police report should apply for it.

APGA has come under intense pressure since it concluded its primaries which produced Senator Ifeanyi Araraume as the governorship candidate.

Some of the aspirants who contested against Araraume had decamped from the party to other parties where they emerged as flag-bearers, while other aspirants dropped out of the race.

According to the release by the police, “The command does not send report of elections to a person or persons as purportedly done in the present report posted on social media.”
