The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it is alarmed by the disturbing video of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state inciting his supporters, threatening to burn and unleash maximum violence on Nigerians during the 2023 general elections.
In the video, Governor Bello was heard issuing threats in his local language in the north-central state.
Yahaya Bello has been accused of promoting terrorism by the PDP, reports Legit.ng.
“I will personally light a fierce fire in my hand whoever want it we shall use it to burn them, whoever survive it will thank God… Whoever is against us we will make him or her join my mother and lie with her (my mother) in grave.”
The PDP in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba said:
“From his outburst, Nigerians now know the individuals who engineered the gruesome killing of many of our citizens including the PDP woman leader in Kogi state, Mrs. Salome Abu, who was burnt alive in her house in 2019.
“Our party also charges the Inspector General of Police to immediately commence a comprehensive investigation into the activities of Governor Bello with a view to nipping this ugly trend in the bud as well as prosecuting him at the end of his tenure as governor of Kogi state.
“We urge Nigerians, especially those in Kogi state not to be deterred by Yahaya Bello whose days in office are numbered but remain vigilant and continue to rally with the PDP in the determination to liberate our nation from the stranglehold of the APC and the likes of Yahaya Bello, come 2023.”
