- PDP has raised concerns over insecurity in the country
- The opposition party has notified security agencies about comments made by a minister, Godswill Akpabio
- The PDP suspects that the minister may have crucial information that could be beneficial to security agents
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said the minister of niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, has questions to answer over comments he made about insecurity.
According to Channels TV, the party in a statement on Friday, April 30, alleged that the minister was privy to information about those responsible for causing insecurity in the country.
A spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan urged the secret service to compel Akpabio to name politicians in the All Progressives Congress that are behind the acts of terrorism and banditry ravaging in the country nation.
“There is self-professed evidence that Senator Akpabio is privy to certain terrorism-related information which he must be made to share with the DSS as well as other security agencies.
The opposition party stated that its call is based on comments reportedly made by the Minister at the APC national secretariat in Abuja on Thursday that the acts of terrorism in our country were politically motivated.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the National Security Adviser, Major-General Babagana Monguno (retd.), and made available to Legit.ng.

The spokesperson for the police, Frank Mba, in a statement sent to Legit.ng on Friday, April 30, said the redeployment is ultimately designed to improve the operational efficiency of the commands and enhance public safety and security.
