As preparations towards the February 20th senatorial re-run election between David Mark of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and Comrade Daniel Onjeh of the All Progressive Congress, APC heat up, the Onjeh Campaign Organisation has accused the opposition of importing Militants into Otukpo ahead of the poll.
The Director Media and Publicity of Onjeh Campaign Organisation , Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi in a statement sent to IDOMAVOICE claimed that the opposition was turning Benue South into a theatre of war.
The statement reads raw and uncut.
“David Mark’s militants arrived Otukpo last night and are being lodged at a hotel owned by Mark’s son Inalegwu Mark is currently hosting the first batch of the Niger Delta militants who arrived from Asaba, Delta State” The second batch moving from Bayalsa State are currently camped at uturu, Abia state on their way to Otukpo. Earlier, the Gov.of Bayalsa State, Mr Dickson was in Otukpo where deals were sealed on how to forcefully rig the re-run election.
“The importation of the Militants shows the desperation of the opposition PDP towards the re-run election, It’s more glaring that Mark has lost grip of his people hence he’s resulting to war situation.
“We believe on the credibility of our security agencies and their capacity to avert the impending mass murder planted by Mark. We hereby call on the chief Security officer of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari, the inspector general of Police and other security outfits in the country to immediately come to the aid of the Idoma – Igede Nation before we are completely wipe out by David Mark’s Militants.
The people of Benue South should be allowed to choose their senator as it’s evident that democracy is of the people. Mark, whose political slogan is anchored on war started by calling for home land defence even though we are not at war. The Och’Idoma, Agabaidu Ikoyi Obekpa has said, the Idoma people are not at war, but the current importation of the dreaded Niger Delta Militants into Otukpo calls for immediate intervention of the security agencies.
“Mark is not the first person to loose election in Nigeria, even a sitting President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan lost his return bid but didn’t call on Nigerians head, what is in the National Assembly that Mark has not seen? That your people no longer want you shouldn’t call for their head,” he stated.
