Accusations and counter accusations are already flying in the air ahead of the By-Election in Kwara State next weekend.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of importing thugs to disrupt the By-election

The damming allegation by the APC was made by Femi David, the campaign spokesperson for the election in Ilorin on Saturday in Omu-Aran.

The APC also accused the PDP of recruiting fake election observers, fake election monitors and fake INEC officers.

According to the APC, in its desperation and characteristic manner to subvert the will of the people, the PDP has been recruiting thugs and fake election observers to disrupt the exercise.

"The thugs and fake election observers it was learnt were to be strategically placed in the stronghold of the All Progressives Congress Candidate (APC), Mr Raheem Olawuyi AKA Ajulopin.

"The PDP has been importing thugs from Rivers, Delta and other neighbouring states to intimidate and harass voters in order to scuttle the exercise having sensed imminent defeat in the by-election.''

The APC also called on security agents not to be compromised as the PDP's stock in trade is to induce the security to look the other way while they  perpetrate their dastard act.

However, in a swift reaction, the PDP Chairman in Irepodun Local Government, Alhaji Saheed Oyelowo said that the allegations were mere fabrication and remained in the realms of speculation.
