 Abia people woke up this morning to be graced with coffins tied with red piece clothes with the inscription, "VOTE AGAINST SGWA INTEREST AND DIE". The coffins were place right beside the campaign poster of APGA candidate, the major rival of PDP, Dr. Alex Otti. Therefore, people ran into conclusion that Otti’s opposition party is scaring people from voting for him on the Saturday April 25 election re-run.  However, the PDP candidate, Dr. Okozie Ikpeazu has drafted a press statement denying having hand in the mischievous act. Continue to read his statement…

"The attention of Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, the People's Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate for Abia State, has been drawn to the ugly incident witnessed in Aba this morning, where caskets are being dropped at various places in Aba, with a threat that those who will not vote for Dr. Ikpeazu and the PDP in the Saturday's supplementary election will die.

"Dr Okezie is by this means dissociating himself from such dastardly act, and also inform Abians and the general public that such is the handiwork of the opposition who have shown their desperations in various ways since the beginning of the governorship contest.

"Dr. Ikpeazu is however, assuring Aba people who have always supported him not to be deterred by the intimidation from Alex Otti and his party, APGA, urging Ndi Aba and Abians in the wards and polling units where the supplementary election will hold on Saturday to come out and vote him as they did on April 11.

"Dr. Ikpeazu is also urging the Aba business community to go about their lawful business without any fear of molestations.”
