OPC to APC: You lied, you can’t hypnotise us all
The Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) has asked the APC, and its spokesperson to Lai Mohammed to concentrate on logistics to win the coming elections, rather than peddle lies against it, and “attempting to create tension and needless outcries”.
The body was reacting to an earlier statement by Mohammed that ethnic militias and ex-militants are now wearing fake police and army uniforms so they can unleash mayhem on the opposition and disrupt voting, especially in the South-west, without hindrance.
The National Publicity Secretary of the APC in a statement issued in Lagos on Friday had stated that OPC members were sighted at Owu -Elepe in Ikorodu Local Government Area on Friday morning changing into fake police and army uniforms.
But the OPC in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Hakeem Ologunro, and titled ‘When will Lai stop disgracing himself?’, said the allegation was lies and challenged him to “come up with video or even pictures to confirm his claims”.
The statement also read, When will Lai Muhammed and his bunch of liars accept the fact that the people of South West have been liberated from their “MASS HYPNOTISM?.
“We have told our members to be peaceful and law abiding. We wash our hands off any attempt to disrupt the election and we are certain nothing will go wrong”.
