The PDP has asked Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), to arrest the national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, for allegedly inciting violence over the Supreme Court judgment which nullified the election of David Lyon in favour of Douye Diri
The PDP made the demand following statements credited to Oshiomhole where he said nobody should be sworn in as governor and later faulted INEC for issuing a certificate of return to Diri.
Kola Ologbondiyan, the spokesperson for the PDP, blamed the utterances of Oshiomhole for the violent protests that erupted over the recent political development in the state.

The party urged the inspector general of police, Mohammed, to immediately bring in the APC national chairman for questioning and prosecution for incitement.
The PDP also asked Nigerians and the security agencies to hold Oshiomhole responsible for the violence in Bayelsa state and deal with him accordingly in line with the provisions of our laws.
