Kwara State Ng : A security official who is in the know has informed us of plot by men of the Department of State Services (DSS) to arrest Senator Rafiu Ibrahim and detain him till after the governorship and state assembly election coming up tomorrow.
The source disclosed that the DSS officers who are apparently acting on the instructions of some leaders of the APC in Kwara plans to surround the Ojoku residence of Senator Rafiu tonight and whisk him away, to make him unavailable for tomorrow’s election.
He also revealed that some top PDP members across the State have pencilled down for arrest between tonight and tomorrow.
We received information from the same source that some APC leaders including Arch Lola Ashiru and Femi White have been having night meetings with some security operatives in Osun State so as to avoid the prey eyes of vigilant Kwarans.
This is part of the grand plot by the APC to intimidate and harass PDP members and supporters ahead of the governorship and state assembly election, which was the same tactic they employed during the presidential and national assembly election.
Also, we note with concern the spread of fake news about stalwarts of the PDP including the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki by some paid online agents of the APC, which is deliberately done to put them in bad light. We, therefore, ask discerning members of the public to be wary of such fake reports.
We are by this alert drawing the attention of the media, civil society groups and local and international observers to devilish move by the APC-led Federal Government to use state apparatus to clampdown on opposition figures and scuttle the electoral process in Kwara.
Concerned Kwara PDP Youths.
