The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has on Monday night, said that the Deputy Director General of Atiku Campaign Organization, Barr. Tanimu Turaki SAN, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
However, the PDP has warned that Turaki be release immediately and unconditionally.
In a statement by its publicity secretary Mr.Kola Ologbondiyan, said Turaki’s arrest and detention is a plot by the Buhari administration and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to intimidate PDP leaders and clamp down its determination to reclaim our February 23, 2019 Presidential election victory in court.
The statement reads:
“Since the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the PDP expressed our unwavering determination to reclaim our victory at the tribunal, being armed with overwhelming evidence, our leaders have been subjected to escalated harassments, constant threats, blackmails, cajoling and contrivances by the APC to drop our legal option.
“It is instructive to state that Tanimu Turaki was arrested and detained upon invitation by the EFCC to endorse a bail document for the Finance Director of Atiku Abubakar’s company, Babalele Abdullahi, who was arrested earlier by the commission over flimsy allegations.
“The PDP, however, states in clear terms that the APC and the Buhari Presidency are fighting a lost battle as no amount of harassment and threats will ever make the party to buckle in its determination to take back the mandate, in line with the wishes and aspirations of Nigerians.
“Nigerians are resolute on this struggle to reclaim the mandate freely given to Atiku Abubakar at the polls and the PDP will pursue this decision to its logical end and secure justice for the Nigerian people”.
Recall that Atiku’s Son-In-Law was also arrested by EFCC yesterday.
