The Police have been used as a tool to oppress the people | Anambra governorship candidate, Nwoye says

The All Progressives Congress  (APC) Governorship candidate in the Anambra election, Tony Nwoye has alleged intimidation and harassment of party supporters in some parts of the state.

Nwoye made this allegation when he voted in his Nsugbe Ward I in Anambra East Local Government Area on Saturday at 11:50 a.m.

Highlights: Mr Nwoye showed concern as the APC state chairman, Emeka Ibe was arrested and detained “for no just cause”.

He said, “the Police have allowed themselves to be used as a tool of oppression and suppression in the hands of the ruling party in the state.

 “The ruling party has been using Police to suppress our people,” he said; adding that a party stakeholder, Celestine Ofoegbu, was also arrested and detained.

He, however, added that in spite of the harassment and intimidation, “I will emerge victorious.

Nwoye said that there was no voter apathy in the state – therefore, gave INEC an average pass mark.

Reaction: The Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of operations, Joshak Habila, denied that his men have arrested anybody.

Our men are doing what is expected of them. We did not arrest and detain anybody,” Mr Habila said.

One more thing:

The PDP governorship candidate, Oseloka Obaze, who voted at 1:45 p.m., decried what he called ‘voter apathy’ in Ogbaru and Nnewi North Local Government areas.

He also complained that the poll did not take place in Okpoko in Ogbaru and Umudim in Nnewi North council areas.

The candidate, however, expressed confidence that he would win the election if it remains free and fair.
