Exposed Video: PDP Urges Presidency To Question Oshiomhole, Gambari On Arrest Comments Made In Video
President Muhammadu Buhari has been asked by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to with immediacy arrest the sacked National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, after seeing a surfaced video of him and the President’s Chief of Staff talking about arresting certain individuals ahead of the September 19 Gubernatorial election.
This revelation was contained in a press statement recently signed by the party’s Secretary, National Campaign Council in Edo, Kola Ologbondiyan.
According to the statement, “Nigerians were left dumbfounded after they saw video where Oshiomhole made request to Chief of Staff to President Buhari, to repress certain personalities in buildup to the September election.
