Ist November, 2018.
The Commissioner of Police,
Cross River State Command,
A CASE OF DESTRUCTION OF CAMPAIGN BILL BOARDS, POSTERS, INCESSANT INTIMIDATION AND HARRASSMENT.
Mr Commissioner, we are compelled to write this letter to you concerning the worrisome situation of insecurity in the streets and corners of Ogoja local government area of the State.
The increasing spate at which the PDP thugs and her conspirators led by one Leo Inyambe are meting unprovoked hostilities on the Jude Ogbeche Ngaji Campaign train is highly condemnable.
In the the last three days, agents of the PDP loyal to the member representing Ogoja/Yala in the House of Representatives, Hon Jarigbe Agom have been going about destroying our billboards and posters, especially in Ogoja.
The numerous supporters and loyalists of our principal, Jude Ogbeche Ngaji have noticed with utter shock and dismay this incessant and wanton destruction of campaign billboards, posters, and indiscriminate intimidation, against the extant laws of our electoral process.
We wish to urge the Nigerian Police Force to immediately call on the perpetrators to desist from acts that are capable of causing chaos and breakdown of law and order in Ogoja.
We do not want violence in Ogoja but the opposition and their thugs must be told in clear terms that they should not mistake our civility and humility for weakness.
Before we embarked on pasting of our campaign posters and erecting billboards, we made sure that we never violated any laws of the state.
Therefore, there is no reason under the law that our posters and billboards should be destroyed apart from the dying intolerance of the opposition.
This call became necessary following the destruction of Jude Ngaji billboard and posters by these miscreants.
Hon. Gabe Ugor
