#NigeriaDecides2019: PDP's Lead Agent In Benue Arrested At 5.30am By IGP- Gov Samuel Ortom (VIDEO)
The Governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom believes it is not too early to pick holes with the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and the APC led executive arm of government.
While casting his vote in his home town, the governor accused the IGP of highhandedness and actions capable of eroding the electoral process.
"My fear is that there will be continuous intimidation from security agencies. I have just been told that our (PDP) state agent has been arrested for no just cause.
"He was arrested on the basis that he was training thugs. Where are the thugs? The alleged thugs were not arrested but he was arrested in his house at 5.3oam this morning.
"I have spoken about this before and there is no basis for us to continue to deceive ourselves. This will not be allowed.
"The APC know that they have no where in Benue state. So, they are collaborating with the security agencies trying to get votes here.
"I have been told that the IG directed that these people should be arrested. Why would we need to have police from Abuja coming here when we have competent officers here".
Meanwhile, the governor claims about 180,000 Internally Displaced People have been disenfranchised by INEC following the umpire's decision to allegedly look away from the area.
