A group under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Conscience Forum has called for the immediate arrest of Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) Chairman Hon Abdullahi Adamu Candido over allegations that he has concluded plans to cause mayhem and instigate crisis if his sponsored and preferred candidate is not announced winner.
The AMAC APC primaries was conducted recently but was marred by lots of irregularities.
But in a statement by the coordinator of the group, Comrade Joseph Jonah, the APC group said they will mobilise and resist Candifo’s plans by all means if the security agencies fail to apprehend him and stop his purported plans to mobilise thugs from neighboring states of Niger and Nasarawa to unleash mayhem to party officials and stakeholders who he thinks have supported the Candidature of Hon. Murtala Karshi who they perceived has emerged at the just concluded APC party primaries.
“We want to make it categorically clear that we will mobilize massively to repeal every plan by him (Candido) to cause unnecessary crisis or attack in our communities,” the group said.
Comrade Jonah who raised the alarm, also alleged that part of the plot of the AMAC Chairman Candido and his supporters is to produce mass fake army and police uniforms for use by thugs to deceive unsuspecting residents that they were genuine security personnel assigned to maintain peace in the communities.
“Our findings have shown that the level of insecurity that reached its peak in FCT can be attributed to the circulation of such dangerous weapons like guns, machetes and the likes which were distributed to political thugs by politicians and heartless self-styled leaders in neighbouring States.
“We fear that not only will the weapons be used to achieve his agenda, in the aftermath of the official announcement, the distributors of the dangerous weapons, may not be able to mop them up as the case in so many elections in some States.
“The result is that motorists plying highways in the state become victims of armed robbers, who terrorize, kill and maim these victims in their dozens, making the state one of the unsafe states in the country today.
“This alert has become necessary to enable you to use your good office as the IGP, DSS, Civil Defense, and others security agencies to stop these dubious and callous political intended act by the Council Chairman who take pride in spilling human blood in their quest to install a predecessor by all means and continue to assume political offices,” the forum said.
