CUPP raises alarm over FG’s plan to declare state of emergency in Taraba

…Says IGP plotting to arrest Taraba governor’s ADC, invites him to Abuja.

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) said it has uncovered plans by the All
Progressives Congress-led Federal Government to ensure that a state of
emergency is declared in Taraba State because of the party’s failure to
win the state governorship election.

According to the 1st National Spokesperson of CUPP, Imo Ugochinyere, we learnt on good authority that in order to achieve their aim, the APC party is instigating ongoing religious killings being experienced in the state.

“We have also discovered that the nation’s security forces are giving
those behind the sponsored killings tactic support with their silence,
hence their failure to quell the uprising.

“The security agencies are not doing much, rather they are trying to
undermine the governor.

“Insiders have also informed us that the acting Inspector-General of
Police is planning to arrest the Aide-De-Camp to the governor, hence his
invitation to the police headquarters, Abuja.

“The strategy is to accuse him of arming and working with some militia in
a bid to get at the governor.

“APC leaders are clearly not happy that they lost the election and they
are stocking the killings and crisis to cause reprisal attacks from
other religious groups which will lead to the declaration of state of

“We therefore call on the APC to accept defeat and call off their members
from ongoing instigation of religious violence in Taraba State.

“Let President Muhammadu Buhari halt the carnage in Taraba State for the
good of all and avoid acts which will lead to abrupt end of this

“A word is enough for the wise,” he said.
