- Urges security agencies to investigate, apprehend perpetrators
The All Progressives Congress Campaign Council in Delta State on Wednesday, condemned the attack on the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Sheriff Oborevwori, by suspected assassins.
The Delta APC Campaign Council in a statement by its Director, Communications and Media Strategy and member, APC Presidential Campaign Council, Ima Niboro, demanded an immediate investigation and apprehension of the perpetrators by the relevant security agencies.
APC in the statement said it “received with shock the reported attack on the Delta Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Gubernatorial Candidate and Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, by suspected assassins.
“We unequivocally condemn this attack and demand an immediate investigation and apprehension of the perpetrators by the relevant security agencies.
“While we cannot say without the benefit of an investigation if this condemnable act was politically motivated or not, we make haste to say that we are all Deltans and we are all brothers and sisters.
“The Delta APC is on the cusp of a historic victory. Regardless, we choose not to play politics with insecurity. We hold this so dear to heart that Enduring Peace and Security is a crucial part of our EDGE agenda.
“It is in this regard that we firmly deplore the finger-pointing by PDP in a matter that should be of grave concern to all. Theirs is public communication at its most tasteless, and should have no place in any civilized discourse”.
