Ondo PDP Accuses Labour Party of Importing Mercenaries for Violence Print
Vanguard - February 21, 2007 - By Dayo Johnson Akure

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State yesterday raised alarm that the Labour Party (LP) has imported mercenaries into the state to foment violence ahead of the April elections.

Addressing newsmen in Akure the Director General of the Agagu 2007 Campaign Organization, Mr Ola Oguntimehin, added that the "party had also perfected plans to start raising false alarm across the state."

In a swift reaction, the LP described the allegation as "total falsehood and baseless", adding that the alarm by the ruling party was like a pot calling a kettle black. 

The Secretary for Publicity, Media Relations and Strategy of the party Mr Aderemi Olatubora said "it was the PDP that had been provoking members of the LP because of the rising profile of the party in the state and we had at several times raised the alarm over the spate of attacks on its members by loyalists of the PDP."

But Oguntimehin pointed out that " LP had massively imported mercenaries of violence into the state to create a semblance of a heated polity and an atmosphere of fear and violence among the people.

" Since we started the activities of our political process, the activities of the PDP have not been prone to violence, people should discern where the agents of violence are coming from.

"We condemned the introduction of thuggery into political activities in Ondo State. As a party, as a campaign organization for Agagu we condemned it totally. The Labour Party has been at the center of this violence and political provocation.
