The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, are making efforts to disrupt the general elections.
In a statement released on Facebook on Monday, January 16, the PDP claimed that Tinubu has established a dangerous militia code-named ‘Jagaban Army’ with which he will unleash violence on innocent Nigerians during the polls.
The opposition party claimed that by establishing a militia and draping them with military uniforms, the APC and Asiwaju Tinubu have declared war on Nigerians and openly dared the Nigerian military apparently with the aim to undermine national security architecture and sovereignty as a nation.
As the PDP sees it, the formation of this dangerous militia is in compliance with the directive of Tinubu in London to members of the APC to take power by all means.

The party added that in Tinubu's directive contained in a leaked video, he charged his followers that “political power is not going to be served in a restaurant, it is not served a la carte. It is what we are doing; It is being determined; you do it at all cost; fight for it, grab it, snach it and run with it”.
It added that there are already apprehensions in the public space that the APC has been recruiting, training, and arming thugs and terrorist elements in secret locations across the country and stockpiling ammunition for the harassment maiming, and killing of Nigerians before, during, and after the 2023 general elections.
The PDP, therefore, is calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to take immediate steps to ensure Tinubu and the APC do not derail the country's democracy.
It also charged the security agencies to take immediate action to invite Tinubu for questioning as well as arrest the APC youth leader, Dayo Israel, and other APC leaders involved in what has been described as a threat to public safety.
