Just days to the rescheduled presidential and National Assembly elections, the APC has accused the ruling PDP of training special armed squads to intimidate the electorate and rig the polls to its favour.
APC national publicity secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who made this claim at a press conference, said the party would resist attempts to manipulate the results of the polls.
He said, “Thugs have been trained in several south-western states, particularly Ondo and Ogun states, to disrupt the coming elections. In Ondo State, training was organized by the PDP new leadership in Ilaje/Okitipupa zone. These thugs, numbering over 300, were given two weeks training in weapons use under a commander/president called Miti."
