The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has called on the National Assembly and other relevant bodies to immediately open a system-wide investigation into all violations leading to loss of lives and property across the country. The party made the call in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan on Tuesday in Abuja.
He said that the legislators must immediately open a system-wide investigation into all violations leading to loss of lives and property across the country. Ologbodiyan also expressed concern over the mounting tension, escalating public restiveness, violence and rising cases of extra-judicial killings in the country.
He said that the frightening situation was precipitated by series of divisive and undemocratic actions and disobedience to court orders and disregard to constitutionally guaranteed rights of citizens.
Ologbondiyan said that the PDP rejects the resort to maximum unleashing of state apparatus of power against citizens at the slightest provocation. He stressed the need for the government to curb bloodletting and extra-judicial killings of compatriots, which were never investigated.
