The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has warned that any attempt by opposition to abduct and silence opposition chieftains especially opposition spokesperson for Ideato North South PDP Reps candidate, Ikenga Ugochinyere and Labour Party Candidate for Orlu/Orsu/Oru federal constituency, Hon. Geff Ojinika will lead to unprecedented crises and damage the integrity of Nigeria Police Force.
Comrade Mike Adebayo Co-Spokesperson of CUPP who made the allegations in a statement on Monday, said the plan is to abduct the opposition leaders, then use trump up charges on them before an arranged magistrate in Owerri, Imo to help cover the compromise of voter register called ‘omuma’ magic where fake names was uploaded into the register.
According to CUPP, this move is to silence the opposition parties from exposing more shocking details on those who compromised the voters register and plot to rig the 2023 election.
The coalition fingered the IGP, Usman Alkali Baba, and the Governor of Imo, Hope Uzodinma of being the brain behind the evil plot.
The coalition wondered why the IG of police who’s appointed to serve and protect the citizens chose to be part of this plot by a party that has failed Nigerians for eight years and now scared to loose next year’s election.
CUPP urged Police IG to show his readiness to be trusted to police a free and fair elections by ensuring that Imo Police command is not aiding Governor Hope Uzodinma Imo APC government in their plot to silence the truth about the voters register compromise.
CUPP vowed that any attempt to abduct any of its leaders will highly be rejected, and will not be intimidated into silence.
The statement reads, “I have confirmed that the Nigerian Police and Imo Police Anti-kidnap Unit in particular are planning to abduct me & Hon.Geff Ojinika & use trumped-up charges before a magistrate court to silence the Opposition from exposing more shocking details on those who compromised the voters Register and perfected an evil plot to rig the 2023 election which would have thrown Nigeria into Election related violence.
“The voters register is a public document meant to be pasted publicly as stipulated in the Electoral Act and not a secret document. The Police IG must show his readiness to be trusted to police a free and fair elections by ensuring that Imo Police command is not aiding Uzodinma Imo APC government in their plot to silence the truth about the voters register compromise. How can we have a police force that instead of going after criminals who compromised the Voters register is busy looking for the source of the leakage of the information that have saved democracy. Voters Register is a Publicly displayed document as required by Section 19 of the Electoral Act and not a secret document. This action of the Police is embarrassing and can destroy the credibility of the 2023 election. The question on the lips of every Nigerian is whether the Nigeria Inspector General of Police is aware of this developments ?” The statement concluded rhetorically.
