The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, has lamented that Nigeria was turning into a police state.
Secondus raised the alarm and also called the attention of the global community to what he described as the emerging trend of reckless arrest and detention ahead of the general election.
The PDP Chairman was reacting to the police invasion of the Abuja home of a serving Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial zone, Senator Dino Melaye on Friday in a statement signed and forwarded to DAILY POST by his Media Aide, Ike Abonyi.
Secondus noted that it’s “a clear sign that the country’s security situation has deteriorated greatly into a police state.”
He said that “the international watchers should take copious note of the brazing intimidation of persons who returned to PDP from APC while those who crossed over to APC are glorified.”
Secondus noted that “the APC has become a safe heaven even for all those with questionable character, who crossed over to the APC while their counterparts who have nothing incrementing on them are hounded by agents of state.”
According to the National Chairman, “all these nefarious actions are designed to cow the opposition but warned that anything aimed at thwarting the will of the people would be stoutly resisted.
