The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has decried the arrest and detention of its Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

A statement issued on Wednesday by PDP’s National Legal Adviser, Mr. Victor Kwom, described the development as oppressive and unfair treatment against the party’s key leaders by the Federal Government.

The statement said, “The party alerts the nation that the arrest and detention of its Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is part of the grand script by the APC-led Federal Government to decimate the opposition.

“We are also aware that plans have been perfected by the Federal Government to arrest and detain the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio and other leaders of the party on imaginary charges.

“Indeed, intelligence available to the party shows that the Federal Government, using its various agencies, is bent on destroying any opposition to the ruling party as all indications show that the government is more interested in humiliating the PDP than fighting corruption.

 “Finally, we state that this war on the PDP and its leaders has indeed gone too far. It has now become a mockery of democratic practice.”
