Ebonyi State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP have accused the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, of launching an attack on its members who testified as witnesses against the APC before the Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abuja.
The Caretaker Committee Chairman of the PDP in the State, Augustine Nwazunku, alleged that the PDP witnesses who testified before the election Tribunal at Abuja were attacked on return to their respective homes by suspected APC hitmen.
According to Nwazunku some APC Chieftains and leaders had been going around communities and local governments to threaten PDP faithful preparing to testify as witnesses before the Tribunal.
In a reaction, the State Chairman of the APC, Stanley Okoro-Emegha, described the allegations as unfounded, challenging the PDP to bring up evidence of the alleged attacks on its members before the public.
Okoro-Emegha said the State government was busy with governance to be distracted by any person or group, urging the PDP to put their house in order and desist from making wide allegations.
