IGP summons top Akwa Ibom PDP leaders over ‘destruction of Buhari’s campaign materials’


Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police, has summoned some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in Akwa Ibom state to Abuja over the violence which led to the destruction of some campaign materials of President Muhammadu Buhari’s reelection bid.

Supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the PDP clashed in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state capital, earlier in the month.

Ini Okpodio, chairman of the APC in the state, was said to have written a petition to the police over the issue, prompting the invitation by Idris.

Among those the IGP invited are Idongesit Nkanga, campaign coordinator of the reelection of Udom Emmanuel, governor of the state; Paul Ekpo, chairman of PDP in the state; Onofiok Luke, speaker of the state house of assembly; Iniobong Essien, commissioner for environment; and Fubara Duke, senior special assistant to the governor on security.
