All Progressives Congress, APC, has challenged security agencies to investigate an intelligence report linking a North-west governor to the heightened cases of banditry, abductions and other violent crimes in the zone.
The party also warned the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from politicising the abduction of schoolboys in Kastina state.
The party was reacting to a protest organized by the Peoples Democratic Party and it women at its campaign headquarters in Abuja.
In a statement issued in Abuja Thursday, by its Acting Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, the APC accused the PDP of seeking political gains from issues of insecurity.
Nabena did not name the North-west because of the sensitive nature of the intelligence report said the increased spate of banditry in the North West was politically-motivated and not unconnected to the unnamed Governor’s alleged sponsorship of banditry and other violent crimes in the zone.
“Our security agencies have intelligence reports linking one of the North-West governors of colluding and sponsoring the violent and criminal activities of bandits in the zone. I won’t give details because of the sensitive and secure nature of the issue. However, relevant security agencies must as a matter of urgency investigate the report and determine its veracity. Human life is not what we should play political chess games with.
“We must shun enemies of the country including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who seek political gains from issues of insecurity.
“Our security agencies must also be alert to plots to further destabilize the North-west region and frustrate the quick and safe release of students abducted following late Kankara Katsina State: Student kidnapping for [GSSS Kankara Katsina State] secondary school,” Nabena said.
