The statement read: “The PDP is aware that the plot is a desperate bid by the APC to rush into the Ekiti Government House to remove and tamper with documents and evidence confirming the rigging of the July 14 governorship election, ahead of the sitting of the election tribunal.
“Having realized that there is no way their daylight robbery at the poll can stand in the court, the APC is now employing all desperate means to subvert the course of justice.
“This explains why a detachment of the Police can be hurriedly deployed to besiege the Ekiti state Assembly complex last night without a formal request by the speaker, the clerk or the ergeant-at-arms, who is the chief security officer of the complex.”
The PDP warned that its members would resist any underhand measures to impeach the governor which falls short of constitutional requirements.
It further accused the ruling party of harassing, intimidating and using brute force against individuals and democratic institutions; and warned that this portends a grave danger for Nigeria.
It added: “Now that the political and parliamentary establishment of the Ekiti House of Assembly has loudly declared that they do not require the services of the detachment of policemen, PDP charges the APC to immediately withdraw their armed agents from the premises of the House of Assembly.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Governor Ayo Fayose raised the alarm over the aerial surveillance of the Government House by a helicopter belonging to the Nigeria Police Force.
The governor made the development public in a statement issued by his chief press secretary, Idowu Adelusi. He alleged that the chopper had constituted danger to his personal safety, as well as the safety of his family, workers and visitors to the Government House.
