The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Gombe State has called on security agencies to arrest the State campaign coordinator of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Jamilu Gwamna, for allegedly issuing death threats to voters in Bolari West in Gombe Local Government Area of the State.

Addressing newsmen on Friday, the spokesman of Gombe State PDP campaign management council, Ayuba Aluke, accused Gwamna of threatening parents in the area that they would lose their children if they allow them to vote for PDP.

According to Aluke, the comment is capable of jeopardising the existing peace in the state as people who are not APC members could be killed for not sharing the same political views as Gwamna.

In his words, “In Bolari West, where one Alhaji Jamilu Ishaku Gwamna, went in a purported campaign where he made inciting comments. The comments are threatening the life and security of the people of Bolari West. He openly threatened that anybody who comes out on election day to vote for any other person except his principal, party the APC, ‘his mother should be ready to give birth to another child’.

“We are bringing up this issue to the notice of security agencies in the state; the police, the Department of State Services, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Independent National Electoral Commission to checkmate and take appropriate action about this. Taking action will ensure sanity in the state. To PDP supporters, don’t be afraid of coming out so that we can vote out this government that has held us backwards.”

Aluke noted that the PDP governorship candidate, Alhaji Jibrin Barde, has digitised politics, stressing that instead of the usual violence that politics in the state was characterised with, his principal would pursue legal means towards protecting Bolari West voters and the entire state.
