Abia APGA guber candidate commends DSS for arresting PDP agent

Abia State governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Prof Greg Ibe has commended the Department of State Security, DSS, for arresting a suspected political thug, Tony Otuonye.

Otuonye, said to be a member of PDP, was seen in a viral Facebook video last week, allegedly threatening to apply ritual violence during the March 18 guber and House of Assembly elections in Abia.

Reacting to the development, the APGA guber candidate, applauded the DSS for rising to the occasion, stating that people like Tony Otuonye still abound in the state and needed to be checkmated.

Prof Ibe, who also alleged that there are plans to destabilise BVAS machines in Abia State, pointed accusing fingers at some political parties in the state, lamenting that the alleged parties were trying to recruit the services of INEC ad hoc staff.

Ibe, the founder of Gregory University Uturu, said his allegation is based on some intelligent reports at his disposal and therefore called on security agencies to nip in the bud any plan to subvert the elections.

He also warned INEC against repeating the fiasco of February 25, saying that his party is set for total victory on Saturday under a free and fair poll.
