The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Akwa Ibom State, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of sponsoring the attack on Senator Godswill Akpabio’s home on Tuesday.
The Chairman of the APC in the State, Ini Okopido blamed PDP for the attack on the former Senate Minority Leader, in his country home at Essien Udim Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
A statement by the media aide of the senator, Anietie Ekong, in Uyo on Tuesday, claimed that 10 unidentified gunmen stormed Akpabio’s residence and shot sporadically causing a stampede among those who were attending a crucial political meeting in the house.
Ekong also noted that a retired Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Udom Ekpoudom, was seen making frantic calls for increased security to help repel the attack.
The State’s APC Chairman in a statement on Wednesday said the “unprovoked attack” on Akpabio’s residence was unwarranted.
“The APC family will not tolerate such unwarranted attack on any of her members/leaders. The hoodlums, while shooting sporadically around the environment, robbed passers-by and a nearby petrol station.
“Even though the incidence was promptly reported to the state Commissioner of Police by the retired Deputy Inspector-General, Udom Ekpoudom, who witnessed the attack and the CP responded by sending police reinforcement to the scene, such an action by unguided miscreants is unacceptable and condemnable.
“Politicians should play by the rules to forestall reprisals,” he said.
