IGP Summons Top PDP Leaders Over Buhari’s Campaign Materials




Ensure Peaceful Election, Buhari Tells Nigeria Police

The Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris, has summoned some leaders of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Akwa Ibom state to Abuja over the violence which led to the destruction of some campaign materials of President Muhammadu Buhari’s reelection bid.

Africa News 24 reports that supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the PDP clashed in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state capital, earlier in the month.

APC Chairman in the state Ini Okpodio was said to have written a petition to the police over the issue, prompting the invitation by Idris.

Among those the IGP invited are Idongesit Nkanga, campaign coordinator of the reelection of Udom Emmanuel, governor of the state; Paul Ekpo, chairman of PDP in the state; Onofiok Luke, speaker of the state house of assembly; Iniobong Essien, commissioner for environment; and Fubara Duke, senior special assistant to the governor on security.
