APGA wants Ag­baso ar­rested

Daily Trust - - LAW - By Ab­bas Ji­moh

The All Pro­gres­sives Grand Al­liance (APGA) has called for the ar­rest and pros­e­cu­tion of Chief Martins Ag­baso, its erst­while chair­man who was re­moved by court for al­legedly break­ing into the na­tional sec­re­tar­iat of the party.

The Na­tional Chair­man of the party, Dr Vic­tor Oye, told re­porters yes­ter­day in Abuja, that Ag­baso al­legedly carted away some sen­si­tive doc­u­ments af­ter il­le­gally declar­ing him­self chair­man of the party.

Oye said there was no cri­sis in APGA, ad­ding that it would con­sol­i­date its gains in the Novem­ber 18 Anam­bra gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion.

He stated this at the party’s na­tional sec­re­tar­iat, where all the na­tional lead­ers, state chair­men and other party loy­al­ists paid him a sol­i­dar­ity visit.

He also al­leged that Ag­baso’s group, apart from cart­ing away sen­si­tive ma­te­ri­als and doc­u­ments, also stole N19 mil­lion when it re­port­edly broke into his of­fice last week Thurs­day.

“The real own­ers of the party are here (party’s na­tional sec­re­tar­iat). What hap­pened on Thurs­day last week was shame­ful, in­tol­er­a­ble, wicked and il­le­gal. But for us they came when we were not there be­cause we had closed from the of­fice,” he said.

He said he had pe­ti­tioned the po­lice to re­trieve the money and the doc­u­ments al­legedly carted away.
