APC urges DSS to probe PDP’s alleged foiled attack on Atiku. The opposition Peoples Democratic Party has claimed that it prevented an alleged attack on its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar. The ruling All Progressives Congress has requested that the Department of State Services and other security organizations in the nation look into the validity of this claim.

The appeal was made only a day after Debo Ologunagba, the PDP spokesman, alerted the public that gunmen believed to be Boko Haram militants had broken into Atiku’s home in Adamawa.

Ologunagba stated that the alleged sponsored attack was however foiled by men of the Adamawa State Police Command.

In the early hours of Sunday, a suspect named Jubrila Mohammed was detained in connection with the assault.

The PDP spokesman also questioned whether there was any connection between the attack and the ruling APC, whom he accused of reportedly threatening to cause unrest if its preferred conclusion from the impending electoral tribunal did not come about.

The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Felix Morka, responded in a statement released on Tuesday night, calling the accusation a continuation of the PDP’s “vacuous and mindless campaign of calumny.”

Morka further revealed that the PDP has turned to spreading lies and deception as an obsession after its humiliating loss in the most recent presidential election.

“We demand that the PDP’s outrageous accusations be looked into by the police, the Department of State Services, and other pertinent security services. We also invite the PDP leadership to substantiate these claims and bring the offenders to justice. Only a few days prior, the same severely damaged party claimed—without a shred of evidence—that the APC was involved in a plot to intimidate judges in an effort to influence the outcomes of cases currently before the Presidential Election Petitions Court.

“It is downright irresponsible for the PDP to continuously politicise serious matters of security and national importance for its vain and macabre humour. As an age-old party, this ceaseless display of egregious incivility in the conduct of its affairs is disgraceful and sad. Acts of terror or involvement in a terrorist plot are heinous crimes under the law and the PDP cannot continue to bandy allegations around without justification. Atiku Abubakar is a citizen of Nigeria and deserves the fullest protection of the law. Our law enforcement authorities must protect and investigate any threat to his person, family or assets and prosecute offenders.

But Atiku Abubakar’s PDP cannot keep spreading evil lies and criminal blackmail in the name of opposition politics while remaining unchecked and unaccountable. At the polls, Nigerians overwhelmingly rejected the PDP. Rather than engage in some introspection and give the court the time of day to deliver a verdict in the case they have brought challenging the election of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, they have chosen to busy themselves with swimming in an abysmal pool of lies and mischief. Our party will continue to win the hearts and minds of Nigerians through President Tinubu’s strategic program of social and economic development intended to improve our people’s living conditions, the statement said, while vehemently defending our legitimate and popular election mandate in court.
