…Calls on Law Enforcement Agencies To Investigate, Prosecute Those Culpable

The Kogi State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to allegations making the rounds on social media of an alleged abduction of the witnesses of Action Alliance (AA).

The rumour has been making rounds that some persons were abducted within the premises of the National Judicial Institute (NJI) where the Kogi State Governorship  Election Tribunal is currently sitting.

In a statement signed by the State APC chairman, Abdullahi Bello, the ruling party debunked the rumours that said witnesses were abducted.

“While some reports allege that the said witnesses have been released by their abductors some reports allege that they are still in the custody of their alleged abductors.

“The APC Kogi State Chapter categorically refutes the mischievous allegation that any of its Supporters abducted the Witness of the Action Alliance political Party or even had any altercation with any Witness.

“The party views the allegations which are totally false to have originated from mischief makers who are out to tarnish the image of the party and whip up sentiments with the ulterior motive of prejudicing the mind of the tribunal and the public against the APC.

“Indeed, the Chairman of the Kogi State Chapter of our party was in Court on the said 26th February 2024 and he did not Witness any such incidences but was only informed of a fracas which occurred between persons who were outside the tribunal complex.

“The All Progressives Congress condemns the attribution of the alleged abduction to the supporters of the APC and calls on law enforcement agencies to investigate the incidence and prosecute any persons found to have committed such alleged acts.”
