The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has claimed that more than 500 supporters of the party have been arrested by the Police ahead of Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti.
Lere Olayinka, Director of Media and Publicity, Kolapo Olusola Campaign Organisation, raised the alarm Friday night.
He accused the APC of displaying bias and allegedly working for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Olayinka noted: “People holding as little as N2,000 are being arrested for holding cash and some of them are being accused of armed robbery and stealing.
“However, we wish to tell Nigerians that Ekiti people are resolutely behind the PDP and its candidate, Prof Kolapo Olusola and we are sure of of wining the election, except INEC decided to just allocate figures to the APC.
“We therefore urge Ekiti people not to be intimidated by the army of occupation laying siege on the State presently. Ekiti people will triumph.”
