The PDP and APC in Edo State have again accused each other of importing thugs into the state as well as purchasing arms for their supporters ahead of the election .
The two parties had been pointing accusing fingers at each other over the threats of violence in the election .
The Publicity Secretary of the PDP in the state , Chris Nehikhare, who spoke on behalf of the PDP Campaign Council, alleged , “ We have just been alerted that 10 Hummer buses left the Ojo Military Cantonment in Lagos for Auchi, Edo State this (Saturday ) morning. This is one out of over 10 of such calls we have received in the last 48 hours.
“ We are liaising with the relevant security agencies to ascertain the missions of these persons flooding the state . We advise members of the public to watch out for persons whose presence and activities in their neighbourhood are suspicious and report same to the police and other law enforcement agencies . ”
He therefore called on security agents to ensure that voters were insulated from harm before, during and after the election .
