The All Progressives Congress has warned the opposition party, People Democratic Party and the Federal Government to stay away from any plan to assassinate it’s party presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.
APC National Publicity Secretary, Mr Lai Mohammed told Punchng that the PDP-led government had security men who are specially trained as snipers to kill those opposed to President Goodluck Jonathan‘s re-election bid.
Lai Mohammed said “I have never seen a government so terrified of elections as this present administration. And I have never seen a candidate so terrified of the opposition as Jonathan. Even as recent as last week, (Ekiti State Governor Ayodele) Fayose was asking for the withdrawal of Buhari from the Presidential election; and it is just bizarre -but that coming from Fayose, one should not be surprising.
“Coming to issue of security, they have made an attempt on his (Buhari) life once before; it can be done again. But, let us warn them that any attempt on the life of Buhari or Bola Tinubu will lead to a consequence that will be very dear for this country. They should not even contemplate it.”
Lai also told the news site correspondent that the allegation by Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo concerning President Jonathan’s administration training snipers to assassinate opposition politicians was true.
The APC spokesman said Special Force Team was drawn from the Police, Air Force, the Navy, the Department of Security Service and the National Intelligence Agency.
According to Lai, “It is true. They were trained in Belarus. They are security agents drawn from the NIA, the DSS, the Police, the Air Force and the Navy. They were trained on how to take out targets without any trace or without being discovered and they will leave the scene quietly.”
