The campaign organization of the All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate in the scheduled re run poll for Benue South, Mr. Daniel Onjeh has accused the immediate past president of the Senate, Mr. David Mark of being too desperate to win the poll.

 

 

Mark is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the February 20th re-run.

 

The campaign organization of the APC candidate in a statement on Monday signed by its Director of media, Okpokwu Ogenyi also accused Mark of impunity, gansterism and inducement of electorate ahead of the poll.

 

Onjeh also accused the Director General of David Mark Campaign Organisation, Mr Abba Moro of using the official plate number of the interior Ministry, an office he left since May 28th 2015 to sensitize vulnerable youth on violent acts.

 

Ogenyi added that Moro and his Personal Assistants are currently using the official plate numbers of the interior Ministry as a cover in distributing arms and ammunitions including cash to various segments of Benue South.

 

The group urged Security agencies to do more especially in checking the illegal possession of government official plate numbers being used as a cover to perpetuate evil act.

 

“Heavily armed men are assembled all over the Senatorial district to intimidate APC supporters across the 9 Local government Areas in preparation towards the Saturday re-run election.

 

It could be recalled that Alhaji Usman Abubakar, alias Young Alhaji was attacked by armed thugs in 2007, same to Major General Lawrence Onoja Rtd in 2011 while challenging Mark in the senatorial contests.
