Naija News reports that Oshiomhole had accused the PDP of stockpiling arms to cause violence in the November 16 governorship election in the state.
Responding to the allegations in a statement on Sunday, the Bayelsa PDP Chairman, Moses Cleopas, said Oshiomhole and the APC leadership were making up those allegations to justify the deployment of soldiers to the state.
The state PDP leader urged Nigerians to ignore the desperate attempt of the APC to cause mischief and mayhem in the state.
According to him, it was absurd and ridiculous for Oshiomhole and the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, to make wild allegations about arms stockpiling against the PDP.
Cleopas said Oshiomhole would recall how he was hurried out of Bayelsa State to avoid being kidnapped by the leaders of the APC during their primaries in 2015.
He said the botched attempt to kidnap the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Mr. Kola Okunola, by APC militia in Brass for refusing to rig election in February showed that the APC’s politics in Bayelsa was anchored on violence.
