"This is war..stop prosecuting us" PDP tells FG..

Former ruling party, and now the main opposition party in the country, the Peoples Democratic Party, on Wednesday, raised an alarm over the ‘oppressive and unfair treatment’ of its party leaders by the All Progressive Congress-led Federal Government.
The PDP made the disclosure in a statement signed by the National legal adviser of the party, Victor Kwon, on Wednesday.
The statement also averred that there were plans in place to arrest the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio.
This comes on the heels of Wednesday’s arrest of the Deputy National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
It would also be recalled that the National Publicity Secretary of the party was arrested by the EFCC, and is currently facing trial over the allegation that he was involved in the infamous arms deal scandal.
The statement reads in part: “We are also aware that plans have been perfected by the Federal Government to arrest and detain the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio and other leaders of the party on imaginary charges.”
“Indeed, intelligence available to the party shows that the Federal Government, using its various agencies, is bent on destroying any opposition to the ruling party as all indications show that the government is more interested in humiliating the PDP than fighting corruption.”
“Finally, we state that this war on the PDP and its leaders has indeed gone too far. It has now become a mockery of democratic practice.”
