Udom accuses police of intimidating, arresting PDP members
Akwa Ibom State governor, Udom Emmanuel has accused the new Commissioner of Police in the state of intimidating and indiscriminately arresting Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members.
Speaking after voting at Awan Ward 1, Onna Local Government, yesterday, Emmanuel, who looked visibly worried, said: “The new Commissioner of Police sent to Akwa Ibom is working with three or four junior officers to harass innocent people. If you go to their cell now, it is filled with PDP supporters, I don’t know if they have a cell that can take the 2.1 million voters in the state because they all belong to one political party.”
On the abduction of his Senior Special Adviser on Security Matters, Capt Iniobong Ekong, Emmanuel said: “Not that he was picked. I think he was tricked into the army barracks and just kept there. I don’t know what they think one man can do. This is just one human being and we are ready for the election. If he has any issue, I think it is just the police that should have questioned him.”
