CUPP raises alarm over Plan by APC led Federal govt to declare state of emergency in Taraba State over loss of election by instigating ongoing religious killings.
Opposition raises alarm over organised religious killings in Taraba, accuses security agencies of tactics support with inability to quell the uprising.
Says IGP plotting to arrest Taraba governor’s ADC and has invited the ADC to Abuja.
The Coalition of United Political Parties has uncovered plans by the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government to ensure that a state of emergency is declared in Taraba State because of the party’s failure to win the state governorship election.
We learnt on good authority that in order to achieve their aim, the APC party is instigating ongoing religious killings being experienced in the state.
We have also discovered that the nation’s security forces are giving those behind the sponsored killings tactic support with their silence, hence their failure to quell the uprising.
The security agencies are not doing much, rather they are trying to undermine the governor.
Insiders have also informed us that the acting Inspector-General of Police is planning to arrest the Aide-De-Camp to the governor, hence his invitation to the police headquarters, Abuja.
The strategy is to accuse him of arming and working with some militia in a bid to get at the governor.
APC leaders are clearly not happy that they lost the election and they are stocking the killings and crisis to cause reprisal attacks from other religious groups which will lead to the declaration of state of emergency.
We therefore call on the APC to accept defeat and call off their members from ongoing instigation of religious violence in Taraba State.
Let President Muhammadu Buhari halt the carnage in Taraba State for the good of all and avoid acts which will lead to abrupt end of this republic.
A word is enough for the wise.
