The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said those unsettled by the bid of its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to reclaim his mandate are behind the plot to silence him.

PDP called for a comprehensive investigation into the attempt by Boko Haram members to attack Atiku.

It was reported that four suspected Boko Haram members were arrested over a plot to attack Atiku and some sensitive locations in Yola, Adamawa State.

Reacting, PDP’s spokesman, Debo Ologunagba, said the party is alarmed by the reported foiled terrorist attack on Atiku.

A statement by Ologunagba reads partly: “The PDP insists that by the confession of the arrested assailants, the plot has the paw marks of a sponsored attempt on the life of Atiku Abubakar, ostensibly by forces who are unsettled by his bid to retrieve his mandate at the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC).

“Our party believes that the intent of the sponsors of this evil plot is to silence our presidential candidate, massacre innocent Nigerians and cause chaos, confusion and anarchy in the polity.

“The PDP asks, is this foiled attack on Atiku Abubakar and sensitive locations in Yola, Adamawa connected to the recent APC’s threats of chaos and anarchy in the country, if the PEPC upholds the clear provisions of Section 134 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) with regard to the mandatory and statutory requirements for which a Candidate in a Presidential election can be declared winner?”
