The immediate past acting Chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus, has been arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. A statement by PDP’s national legal adviser, Victor Kwon, says Secondus is being accused of illegally receiving a number of buses and demands that the buses be returned. The statement in part reads;
“The oppressive and unfair treatments against its key leaders by the Federal Government. The party alerts the nation that the arrest and detention of its Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is part of the grand script by the APC-led Federal Government to decimate the opposition,”. The statement alleged that there were plans by EFCC to “arrest and detain the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio and other leaders of the party on imaginary charges. Indeed, intelligence available to the party shows that the Federal Government, using its various agencies, is bent on destroying any opposition to the ruling party as all indications show that the government is more interested in humiliating the PDP than fighting corruption’.
