Delta APC campaign council commiserates with PDP governorship candidate over attack

2 min read

The campaign council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State said it received with shock the reported attack on the Delta Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori by suspected assassins.

Oborevwori, who is the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, was reportedly attacked along Warri/Sapele highway on Sunday by hoodlums who ambushed hi convoy and opened fire on the vehicles.

This is said to be the second time within two months that suspected assassins made attempts on the governorship candidate.

In a statement signed by its Director of Communications and Media Strategy, Olorogun Ima Niboro, the Delta State APC campaign council said: “We unequivocally condemn this attack and demand an immediate investigation and apprehension of the perpetrators by the relevant security agencies.

“While we cannot say without the benefit of an investigation if this condemnable act was politically motivated or not, we make haste to say that we are all Deltans and we are all brothers and sisters.

“The Delta APC is on the cusp of a historic victory. Regardless, we choose not to play politics with insecurity. We hold this so dear to heart that Enduring Peace and Security is a crucial part of our EDGE agenda.

“It is in this regard that we firmly deplore the finger pointing by PDP in a matter that should be of grave concern to all. Theirs is public communication at it’s most tasteless, and should have no place in any civilized discourse”.
