APC and PDP flags

The Ogun State All Progressives Congress has described the opposition party in the state, Peoples Democratic Party as a “nest of cultists” that needs to be further investigated by the security agencies in order to make more arrests and stem the tide of cultism in the state.

The Publicity Secretary of the ruling party, Tunde Oladunjoye, said this in a  statement on Sunday, commending the arrest of a PDP lawmaker,  Damilare Bello, alias Dre, in connection with the recent cult violence in Sagamu.

The APC claimed that with Bello’s arrest, it was clear that many high-ranking PDP members were members of cult groups.

“Part of the strategy of these top members/sponsors of the cults, especially in Sagamu, has been to travel out of the country when the planned clashes are being effected, and later return to claim alibi. It is a pattern that could easily be verified by the investigators,” Oladunjoye said.

But in a swift reaction, the PDP Publicity Secretary, Akinloye Bankole, described the ruling party as a hub of criminals and cultists.

The party said, “A quick reminder is also how the government and APC used thugs and cultists to beat members of the opposition on the first day of the Ogun governorship tribunal sitting.”

The PDP also accused the APC of using cultists to allegedly disrupt the March 18 governorship election in the state.
