Police arrest 60-year-old man for defiling 9-year-old girl in Anambra

Police in Anambra State have arrested a 60-year-old man for allegedly defiling a 9-year-old girl in Nkwelle Ezunaka, near Onitsha.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday said the All Progressives Congress (APC) unwarranted invective on former President Goodluck Jonathan was misdirected as it best suits President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, which has “gone down as the most incompetent and most corrupt in the history of our nation.”

The party said the distortions and groundless attack on President Jonathan is a desperate tactic by the APC and the Buhari Presidency to divert public attention from the recent shocking corruption and fraud revelations in which close relatives and confidants of Mr. President are
mentioned.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the opposition party claimed that it has been made aware of “how the Presidency has been in a frenzy to suppress investigations and deflect public enquiries from the arrest of President Buhari’s known confidant deported from the United Kingdom for alleged international passport scam and money laundering, as it
knows that an inquest will further expose the huge rot in the Buhari Presidency.”

“Our party has equally been made aware of how the APC and the Buhari Presidency have been desperate to divert public attention from the administration’s obnoxious decision to further oppress Nigerians by reintroducing tollgates on our highway, increasing Value Added Tax
(VAT), electricity bill and other tariffs as well as their despicable plot to sack government workers.”

The PDP also charged the APC and the Buhari Presidency to “perish the idea of thinking that this unnecessary distortions on the Jonathan administration would bury the demand for an inquest into the Danu racket through which billions of naira meant for the wellbeing of Nigerians are
allegedly being diverted to private purses.”

The opposition party also stressed that Nigerians should note how the APC had remained silent since

revelations that its key leaders and the cabal at the Presidency are involved in the stealing of over N14 trillion meant for the wellbeing of Nigerians.

“Our party further challenges the APC and the Buhari Presidency to speak out on the alleged diversion of the N500bn meant for the Social Investment Programme among other humongous fraud directly perpetrated under the Buhari Presidency.

“Furthermore, in trying to tar the PDP, the APC forgets that it is already common knowledge that all the bad eggs that brought a bad name to the PDP have since left our repositioned party to the APC where their National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, who also has a huge corruption
allegation on his neck, admitted that the party is a haven for corrupt persons.

“Moreover, the fact that President Buhari can only surround himself with persons openly indicted for corruption, as ministers and advisers, speaks volume of the administration’s posturing on corruption,” the statement added.

The PDP therefore charged the APC not to think that it can cover its mess by trying to make “unfounded allegations against President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP as Nigerians can now see through their shenanigans.”
