The All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is excited over the rising insecurity in the South East region of the country.
The APC made the allegation in a statement titled ‘APC mourns Ahmed Gulak, calls for collective action against criminality,’ issues on Monday by the party’s National Secretary, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe.
While mourning Ahmed Gulak, the APC chieftain who was killed in Owerri on Sunday, the party called for national unity to fight crimes in the country.
The statement read: “The All Progressives Congress has expressed shock over Sunday morning’s barbaric killing of Barrister Ahmed Gulak, an APC chieftain in the Imo state capital, Owerri.
“The Party joins Nigerians to mourn his death and condemn his murderers in the strongest possible terms.
“We commiserate with his immediate family as well as the government and people of Adamawa State. He was a shining political leader and patriot.
“The APC and all well-meaning Nigerians is calling for national unity to fight crimes in the country and urge relevant security agencies to leave no stone unturned in their efforts to track down and swiftly bring the perpetrators of this crime to justice.
“While majority of Nigerians sympathise with the victims of crimes in the country, it is discernible that the Peoples Democratic Party is apparently excited about the security incidents being perpetrated by evil-doers against the citizens.”
