The all Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed displeasure over the harrassment of the party Deputy National Secretary, Nasir El-Rufai by the Department of State Security.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Interim National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Lai Mohammed.
APC expressed surprised over the DSS action towards El-rufai for concerning what they referred to as “merely exercising his constitutional right of free speech”
The party supported El-Rufai that there was nothing bad in what he said. El-Rufai was quoted as saying that there might be violence if the 2015 general election were not free and fair
Lai said ” We wonder why the DSS has suddenly found its agility, after playing dead when people like Mr Edwin Clark, Asari Dokubo and Chukwuemeka Ezeife issued a direct threat to Nigeria’s continued existence over president Goodluck Jonathan’s second term ambition,” the statement read.
The party described the storming of the party official’s residence in Abuja by armed DSS operatives on Friday, without producing any arrest warrant as a ‘shameful overkill”
