The Kaduna State Chapter of the All Progressives Change (APC) has alleges of a plot by prominent members of the opposition party to cause sectarian crisis in the state. The party said the plotters are organizing coordinated attacks on property belonging to some individuals and attribute it to members of the APC especially in Southern Kaduna area of the state.
In a statement signed by its Acting Publicity Secretary, Salisu Tanko Wusono, the party said security agencies should investigate the matter and take prompt action.
“We have credible information at our disposal that some members of the opposition and their cronies are presently organizing thugs to attack properties of some individuals in Kaduna and attribute it to our members especially in Southern Kaduna.
“The plot is to cause a breakdown of law and order, we are by this notice alerting security agencies and members of the general public. Should anything happen to our members, we will hold the brains behind the plot responsible.
“We have been following their tactical calls for anarchy and gradual mobilization using various means as a basis of hatching their intention.
“We are also appealing to our members especially in Southern Kaduna to be calm and law abiding. The party shares their concern regarding the threat to their lives and intimidation they are subjected to by various interests.”
The Kaduna State APC also expressed fears in the way some cultural organizations are operating.
“The most unfortunate thing is the harassment and intimidation of our members right under the supervision and collaboration of a supposedly socio-cultural organization that ought to be neutral and non-partisan but now deeply involved in the persecution of our members.”
