The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded the immediate release of its Lagos State chapter chairman, Hon. Philip Olabode Aivoji, who was abducted on his way to Lagos from Ibadan after a very important Party assignment at the weekend.
The PDP said it was seriously concerned about Hon. Aivoji’s well-being and safety, especially considering his age and health status.
National publicity secretary of the party, Hon. Debo Ologunagba in a statement condemned the distressing spate of kidnap for ransom, mindless killings, marauding and other acts of terrorism across the country under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s watch and called for urgent action to ensure the release of all those held in kidnappers’ dens in various parts of the country.
“The alarming situation is an agonising confirmation that the security intelligence, command, operation and coordination structure under President Tinubu has collapsed.
“It is lamentable that despite widespread outcry by Nigerians, the Tinubu administration remains insensitive, nonchalant and laidback on security matters.
“Despite the killing of over 5000 Nigerians with the maiming and kidnapping of many more since he took office on May 29, 2023, President Tinubu has not taken any concrete Presidential measure to stem the carnage beyond issuing insipid press statements and extemporaneous security orders whenever an attack occurs,” the party said.
