I was not arrested with PVCs — Kwara PDP chieftain

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ilorin West Local Government Area of Kwara, Alhaji AbdulKadir Oba-Ajara, on Tuesday said he was not arrested by  security agents in the state with Permanent Voters  Cards (PVCs)

Some of the PVCs in the arrested man’s possession

Addressing newsmen in Ilorin, Oba-Ajara described the report  of his arrest  as baseless and unfounded.

He said there was never a time he was in possession of  voters cards belonging to other people as claimed by the authors  of the ‘unsubstantiated and false report.’

Oba-Ajara  attributed the allegation to the handiwork of some’ mischief makers ‘ whom he said would fail in the attempt to intimidate him.

“I have a PVC which is my legitimate right to possess and I will use that on Saturday.

“I have been  in politics since the 50s and I know the limit to which I can go in politics. I fear nobody except God. So, I cannot be intimated.

“I have submitted myself to the Police and the Department of State Security and they told me that they were not looking for me.” he said.

When contacted on the matter, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Ajayi Okasanmi, told the News men that the command did not arrest anyone with  PVCs.

Okasanmi  said no such incident was reported to the command and as such no arrest was made. (NAN)
