Leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) IN Bayelsa State has condemned as “dastardly” and “senseless” the two days attack by suspected APC thugs on members of the party in Ogbolomabiri community in Nembe Kingdom of Bayelsa state.
Two Chieftains of the PDP, identified as Timi Biriyai Macdonald and Diepreye Akrisia, were on Thursday night brutally attacked by suspected APC thugs. One of the victims, Timi Biriyai Macdonald, was later confirmed dead on Thursday night.
The PDP, in a statement issued on Friday and signed by the State Chairman, Hon. Solomon Aguanana, the Secretary, Hon. Gesiye Isowo and the Publicity Secretary, Hon. Ebiye Ogoli, said the party while sympathizing with the families of the deceased and the injured, “condemn the situation whereby a political party resorts to violence, maiming and killing or scaring away supporters of other parties and freely hijack, collate and return fictitious and non-existence result in its favour from the said community during elections.
