APC Calls For Calm

The All Progressives Congress(APC) has called for calm in the wake of violent clashes between members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Abia and the Nigerian military.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, made the call in a statement issued to newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja.

The statement also expressed regret at the incidence at the secretariat of the National Union of Journalist (NUJ) in Umuahia, where some journalists were assaulted.

“Commendably,the Nigerian Army has tendered its apology and is investigating the matter,” the statement said.

It urged the security agencies to “adhere with globally-stipulated rules of engagements and laws governing their operations.”

The APC added that “the people must also allow the security agencies to conduct their constitutional roles of securing lives and properties without hindrance and provocation.”
