A stakeholder of the area and Speaker of Ebonyi State House of Assembly, Francis Nwifuru blamed desperate politicians in the area who want to win elections at all cost.

Meanwhile, the state PDP chairman, Onyekachi Nwebonyi raised the alarm over what he termed an alleged plot by the APC in the state to arrest top PDP members ahead of the Saturday presidential election.

According to him, the plot is meant to whittle down the power of the PDP and pave way for the APC to rig the election.

He alleged that the plot was being hatched by some major candidates of the APC in the state.

Nwebonyi warned that the PDP would resist any form of intimidation and victimization of their members.

He lamented that PDP members have been killed and many houses burnt in recent attacks in the state.

He, however, appealed for peace and calm, urging Ebonyi people to turn out and participate on the presidential election.

“Security agencies are on ground and have assured us that they will be fair to all,” he said.
