Ebonyi Explosion: "Tell Nigerians The Truth" - PDP Tells Police

The members of the People's Democratic Party, have issued a statement to the state police in Ebonyi to tell Nigerians the truth about the suicide bomb blast incident that took place on Tuesday.



Kossyderrickent reported that a suicide bomber blew himself at Amizu Amangbala Primary School in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State on Tuesday.

After the incident, Ebonyi State Police said that it wasn't a suicide bomb attack, but a teargas attack, which was mistakenly caused by one of its officers. The Ebonyi State came and said another thing.

Out of anger, the Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Silas Onu, issued a statement to Ebonyi state police command to say the truth. The statement reads:

“The PDP in Ebonyi State is concerned that the authorities saddled with the responsibility of securing the state have sadly painted two opposite narratives concerning one incident.

“It is not in doubt that a man dressed in police uniform is lying dead on the said premises. The police had claimed him as one of their own.
 
“However, they also claimed he died of a teargas malfunction. Well, that is simplistic and at variance with the accounts of eyewitnesses.”

“On the other hand, it became more concerning when the Ebonyi State government made a press release wherein it claimed that it was not a bomb explosion, but a grenade explosion. What is really the difference? Both can kill scores of people if deployed properly.
 
“We demand an open investigation of this matter as policemen do not go about their lawful duty carrying grenade.”

“On our part, we condemn all forms of attack on anyone in Ebonyi State. We had and will continue to condemn attacks on the police.

“We also call on the police to build trust with the people by showing themselves to be with the people, not against them. The police must eschew all forms of invitation to be political in the discharge of their duty."
