Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cried out over plots to frame up its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, Senate president Bukola Saraki, on phantom charges of gunrunning and murder.


The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) also raised the same alarm in a statement by its spokesman, Ikenga Ugochinyere, The Guardian reports. Nigeria Moment gathered that the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, alleged that some criminal elements had been contracted to use the vehicles of Atiku and Saraki PDP to cause mayhem and pandemonium by firing into gatherings in various parts of the country.
Ologbodiyan said: “This heinous plot as an extreme act of desperation declaring that its objectives and goals, as laid down by its founding fathers, demonstrate unity, national cohesion and economic prosperity for our nation."
The statement by the CUPP alleged that “elements of the ruling party have commenced the branding of some vehicles with the colours of the opposition bearing the photos of these opposition leaders and have acquired arms which will be hidden in the vehicles and the vehicles will be driven to join the campaign convoy of the opposition consensus candidate in Kwara, Kogi and Adamawa and other parts of the country where they have also selected.
“The vehicles will eventually be searched by the police and the arms identified. Their plot will include mobilizing thugs and causing violence on the day of such identification so as to tag the opposition as violent.”
“The security agencies are hereby put on notice that Nigerians will not accept any breach of security being orchestrated by elements of the ruling party disguised in whichever form they choose. Nigerians are put on notice to be watchful and vigilant to see through the evil plans.”
