The Director General of the Ebonyi State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Campaign Council (GCC), Chief Austin Igwe Edeze, has alleged plans by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to disrupt the upcoming election in the state.

He alleged that the party had distributed over 1,500 AK 47 rifles to its agents to cause mayhem and guarantee victory.

The DG further said that the guns were distributed four per each ward across the state as the ruling party is prepared to do whatever it takes to secure electoral victory against all odds.

Briefing newsmen at the PDP Campaign Office in Abakaliki, Edeze emphasised that PDP was robbed in the last Presidential election and would not allow such to repeat itself in the March 11 election.

“Having been robbed, am not sure we will be robbed again.

"We are aware that APC shared AK-47 rifles with the 171 Wards in the State.

“You can imagine how many we have in each ward.

"We have over 1,500 AK 47 rifles waiting to be used in the next election.

“We will not be silent. We shall protect our votes and we shall win.

“The PDP Governorship candidate must come out victorious in the March 11 election.”

He called on the security agencies in the State to step in and mop up arms and ammunition in the hands of hoodlums in the State.

Reacting to the allegation of arms being distributed to the APC agents in all the wards in the state, the Publicity Secretary of the Party, Ebonyi State, Simbad Ogbuatu explained that the PDP is putting up such an allegation because they are afraid of losing the governorship election.

“It is very unfortunate that the PDP is scared of the forthcoming governorship election.

”It is only a Party that is scared that will go about accusing the ruling APC of distributing AK-47 rifles.

“It’s even the PDP that has done this, that’s why they even know the number of the guns.

"They are scared of the election. We in APC believe in our campaign and the rule of law.”
