Police disrupt PDP meeting in Kebbi

The police said the meeting was stopped due to what they described as ‘security threat’ by thugs from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

It was learnt that a team of mobile police force, led by a DSP told the PDP chairman, Alhaji Musa Ibrahim Dan -Illela, that there was an instruction from Abuja that the meeting should be stopped because there was a plot to attack the PDP stalwarts at the meeting.

Reacting, Dan Illela described the alleged plot to attack the party members as baseless and unfounded. He stated that the party had since last week formally notified all security agencies, including the police of the meeting and permission was granted.
He added, “I wonder how after granting us permission the police could still come to disrupt the meeting and deprive us of our constitutional right of peaceful assembly and association.”

Illela said he had contacted the APC chairman in the state, Alhaji Attahiru Maccido, on whether he was aware of an alleged plot by his party to attack members of the PDP.

“The APC chairman denied any knowledge of such plot,” he said.
