The Lagos State Chapter of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday alleged that some of its detractors were planning to disrupt its House of Assembly primaries scheduled for Saturday 29 November.
NAN reports that the primaries will hold in 40 Constituencies in the state.
In a statement by its State Publicity Secretary, Mr Gani Taofik in Lagos, the party urged those planning the attack to steer clear or risk arrest.
According to the statement, intelligence reports have it that some persons in Lagos State have contracted some thugs to pretend as PDP members at some selected venues of the primaries.
“The contracted thugs are to provoke violence at those venues and thereby unleash injuries on innocent PDP members whilst the image of the party is soiled,” it stated.
The party vowed to arrest any agent provocateur working under any disguise.
It reiterated that it had concluded arrangements to provide a level playing ground for all its aspirants.
“We have concluded arrangements for the exercise and all aspirants shall have equal opportunities at the venues.
“We urge our aspirants and delegates to comport themselves to prevent any acrimony at the venues,” it stated.
