Tiamiyu Saheed Oluwatosin
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Tuesday accused the Federal government and Police of docility in the manner the alleged illegal invasion and violent attack on the Abuja residence of the Taraba Governor, Darius Ishaku was being handled.
It also alleged that the poor handling of the matter was now sparking off suspicions of a creepy ploy to suppress facts and divert public attention from the questions surrounding the unlawful assault.
PDP Spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, made these allegations while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday.
Ologbondiyan affirmed, “The PDP, in spite of that, states in clear terms that it is not satisfied with the manner in which the Federal Government is handling the issue.

“That invasion, as you all are aware, is in direct violation of the Governor’s immunity under the provisions of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), prompting many Nigerian People to point to no other motive other than a deliberate and calculated attempt to intimidate and hurt the person of the Governor of Taraba State, Arc. Ishaku.
“This is especially as the invading operatives had ferociously stormed the residence, threatened the occupants with AK 47 rifles, violently broke the entrance doors, manhandled the governor’s son and carted away valuables belonging to the governor and his son, after finding nothing incriminating in the residence.
“The poor handling of the matter is already heightening apprehensions in the public space that the invasion was primarily designed to setup, frame, incriminate and smear the image and popularity of the Governor of Taraba state; as part of the larger plot to harass, hassle, intimidate, persecute and distract PDP elected officers and bring them to public opprobrium.
“The questions are: who ordered the unlawful invasion of the residence of a sitting Governor in violation of his constitutional immunity? Under what powers was the invasion ordered and what was the real motive?
“Furthermore, what is the response of the Federal Government and the Police in guaranteeing the safety of Governor Darius Ishaku and his family members? Who is in custody of the valuables carted away from the residence by the invading operatives? Who takes responsibility for the damage caused to the residence of the Governor?
“Until these questions are answered, the PDP and the people of Taraba state will continue to hold the APC and the Federal Government responsible for the invasion or should any harm suddenly befall Governor Darius Ishaku, members of his family, officials of his government or officials of our party in Taraba State.”
