Police Foil Attack on INEC Office by SDP Supporters

Attempts by supporters of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) to attack the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Lokoja, have been foiled by the police.

The supporters who arrived the INEC office in their numbers, started off with a protest that turned chaotic, prompting swift security intervention.

This, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state described as a confirmation of the recent alarm that the SDP was determined to destroy relevant government institutions in the state.

The spokesperson of the APC Governorship Campaign Council, Kingsley Fanwo in a statement commended the security for the timely intervention.

“The attempted plan to lynch INEC staff and burn down the INEC Office was gallantly averted by security agents. Their promptness and professionalism is highly commended as their timely intervention saved what would have been a bloody day as weapon-wielding thugs of the SDP were dangerously threatening to make the state ungovernable.

“The laughable story of the SDP that the thugs were hired by our party is no deviation from their culture of terrible and senseless propaganda and strategy to blame everyone else for their own actions. It is high time the thoroughly defeated candidate of the SDP and his co-travellers to an unknown destination are arrested to forestall further breakdown of law and order,” he said.

He called on APC supporters to remain law abiding in the face of provocation.
