The governorship candidate of Social Democratic Party, SDP, in the November 11 governorship election in Kogi State, Alhaji Muritala Yakubu Ajaka has distanced himself from a purported planned protest by supporters of his party in Lokoja and Abuja simultaneously today, Saturday.
In a 41-second video released on Friday night, Ajaka, who is contesting the outcome of the Kogi State Governorship election in court, disclosed that those planning the protest in Lokoja and Abuja are agents of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
The aggrieved SDP Governorship candidate appealed to security agencies to arrest anyone protesting in his name or party.
His words: “I have just been informed of a planned protest by some people claiming to be members of Social Democratic Party, SDP, or acting on my instruction. I did not authorize any protest in Lokoja or Abuja tomorrow, (Saturday).
“Anybody protesting in my name should be arrested. They are all agents of Governor Yahaya Bello trying to cause confusion in the State and possibly in Abuja.
“So please, the security agencies should take note and get these people arrested. Anybody seen with SDP vest tomorrow (Saturday) protesting, they should arrest them. They are agents of Yahaya Bello”.
