According to Sahara Reporters, the police raided the political parties headquarters in Tudunwada Local Government Area of the state and also arrested about eight political thugs from the both parties after recovering assorted weapons from their base.
This was confirmed by the DSP Abdullahi who disclosed that the weapons included swords, cutlasses, knives, various types of drugs and other lethal weapons that are being used by political thugs.
He said: “The weapons were recovered during a special raid on political parties secretariats in the local governments. After we recovered weapons and arrested four persons at the PDP headquarters, we also moved to the APC secretariat where we equally arrested four thugs and recovered weapons.”
Reacting to this recent development, the state chairman of the APC, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, said none of its party members was arrested in connection with the weapons recoverd.
“After all, the weapons were recovered at PDP secretariat, how can they then members of APC be arrested in connection with the weapons recovered from PDP? This cannot be possible,” Abdullahi said.
“The Police should come out and say the truth. We have been vindicated and gradually, people will begin to understand what we have been saying about these people.”
Also speaking, the PDP’s Secretary, Alhaji Shehu Wada Sagagi, said no one has reported the matter to the secretariat.
He said “it could be possible to recover such weapons from people around Tudunwada at least for being hunters”, but he expressed confidence that “the weapons recovered were not meant to kill or hurt anybody”.
He also said that those arrested members have been bailed as nothing incriminating was found on them. He added that the party will petition the police for arresting its members for alleged wrongs.
“This is what we have been going through since the beginning of this year’s election season.”
“Many of our members have been arrested for alleged wrong doings. We will soon petition Police in this respect.”
