The Party insisted that the hijack of electoral materials by the APC leader is a serious criminal offence for which he and his thugs must face prosecution and made to face the full wrath of the law.
The party, in a statement, said, “Moreover, there are reports that the thugs working for Hon. Amadi are part of the killer squad that have been terrorizing the people of Imo State in the recent times; a finding that further exposes those behind the rising insecurity in the State.
“The PDP also charges the Police to arrest and prosecute all APC members who has been exposed to be working as INEC Staffs in the Imo State governorship election, in violation of Section 141 of the Electoral Act, 2022.
