Feb. 23 Elections May Not Hold, US, UK, EU, Alerted, As INEC Headquarters May Be Bombed Any Moment From Now

A former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Timi Frank, on Monday, raised an alarm, over an alleged plot to “bomb the Headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Abuja.”

Frank alleged that the plot is aimed at destabilising the rescheduled 2019 general elections.

This allegation was contained in a statement which he signed, titled: “Plot to bomb INEC Headquarters, in Abuja”.

In the statement, the former APC Deputy Spokesperson, claimed that the “deadly plan” is being orchestrated by those who are bent on destroying democracy in Nigeria, at all cost, even if it amounts to a total breakdown of law and order, or the loss of lives in achieving their agenda.”

He said: “Top among the planners includes three serving Ministers from the Niger Delta, two former Governors, and three Businessmen, all within the ruling party, and benefiting from its largesse.

“Following the postponement of the February 16 polls, and realising that the plan for staggered elections may have been busted, these desperate political crooks are it again, devising yet another grand plan to carry out this evil plot against the Nigerian people.

“Nigerians may recall the mysterious arson on INEC facilities and building all around the country, happening simultaneously, days before the elections.

“Starting off with the burning of the INEC Office, in Quan-Pam, Plateau State, to the burning of Card Readers, in Anambra State, to the burning of INEC materials in 5 buses, at Akwa Ibom and other INEC facilities nationwide, it will be safe therefore, to note that these events are not a coincidence, but rather a grand plot to disenfranchise the opposition strongholds, which is currently underway.

“Having realised that the grand scheme of rigging the polls may have been busted by the INEC Chairman, giving to the postponement of the elections, these desperadoes are bent on doing everything possible in achieving their aim, including the truncating of our hard earned democracy, for selfish gains.

“We are also aware that the services of some Niger Delta Militants are being sorted after, in carrying out this dastardly act, even at a time when the region is being faced with its worst times, under the current administration.

“These Militants are being promised the backing of the Military authorities, as well as being rewarded handsomely, should they succeed in carrying out these attacks.

“I am therefore, urging all true sons of the Niger Delta, to desist forthwith from allowing themselves to be used by these agents of darkness, as no true son of the region will volunteer for such doom, irrespective of any pecuniary gains.

“I would like to thank our foreign partners (EU, UK, US, Ecowas Monitoring group), on the Electoral roles already carried out in Nigeria, and also urge the US, UK and the EU, to continue with its good works, and to further beam its satellite on Nigeria, in the wake of this grave revelation, at a time when the country prepares for its general elections.

“The desperation by these individuals for their paymasters, is as deadly as treason committed on the Nigerian nation. Furthermore, if this plot is true, then we may be faced with the likely scenario of the “body bags”, as suggested by a Chieftain of the ruling party, on all who may be present at the INEC Office, including the foreign Observers.”

Frank speaking further, urged the Security Agencies to beef up security and surveillance around the INEC Headquarters, and pleaded with the INEC Chairman to remain resolute to delivering his trust and mandate to the Nigerian people, on the 23rd of February.

“We are aware of the happenings in INEC, including the role to be played by Amina Zakari, who is now in charge of Collation and RACTEC unit, under the IT Department. Let it be known that any move to frustrate the wishes of Nigerians, will be resisted by all peace-loving Nigerians.”
