Presidential aide denies sponsoring attacks on PDP secretariat

President Muhammadu Buhari ’ s Special Adviser on Niger Delta , Prof Charles Dokubo , has denied the claim that he sponsored some thugs to attack the secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party in Abonnema, Akuku – Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State.

He described the claim , circulating in the social media , “ as barefaced falsehood concocted by vicious mercenaries of the opposition PDP to mischievously draw sympathy and incite vulnerable youths in the area to unleash mayhem before , during or after the rescheduled election in the face of its imminent defeat. ”

In a statement on Sunday by his media aide , Murphy Ganagana , Dokubo said while he was in Abonnema, his hometown , to vote in the election which was later postponed, he had nothing to do with the alleged attack on the PDP secretariat.

He said , “ I arrived Abonnema on Friday evening to enable me to cast my vote the next day, before the election was postponed.

But I was shocked when my attention was drawn to a post in the social media alleging that I aided thugs to attack the PDP secretariat at Abonnema.

“ This is a wicked and dangerous lie as I had no dealing with any thug and didn’ t step out of my residence in my brief stay in the community.

“ But for the presence of my security men , my residence would have been attacked over the false alarm . ”

Dokubo , who is the coordinator of the presidential Amnesty Programme in Niger Delta , accused the opposition of attempting to incite violence against him because they were intimidated by Buhari ’ s rising profile in the region .
