APC, PDP Fight Dirty In Imo State! Widows Involved

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has called on
the Inspector General of Police to investigate the alleged attacks and
brutalisation of widows in Imo State, by officials of the Imo State Government.
The Director of Media and Publicity of the People’s
Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode
criticised the alleged attack while addressing a news conference in Abuja.

Femi noted that the women were on a peaceful protest to pray
for the womenfolk in the state against sudden widowhood.
He, therefore, called on the Inspector General of Police, to
arrest and prosecute all persons involved in the attacks and brutalisation of
the widows.
The PDP request is coming after a clash between some
purported members of the PDP and All Progressives Congress, when some widows
were on a protest to the Imo State Government House, to condemn the alleged and
unwarranted media attacks by the State government on the person of their
matron, Professor Viola Onwuliri, the Minister of State for Education.
Eyewitness said that the clash occurred early in the
morning, when some aggrieved widows, all dressed in black attires from
different Local Government Areas of the state, alleged to be supporters of PDP
stalwart and the Minister of State for Education, Professor Viola Onwuliri,
marched towards the government house with coffin.
Meanwhile, the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha while
calling for peace, condemned the act by Professor Onwuliri, for instigating
such action against the State Government.
He called on President Goodluck Jonathan to call his
ministers and PDP leaders in the state to order, so as to prevent any further
chaos and political violence in the state.

However, Mr Fani-Kayode has called on the Imo State
Government to apologise to the women, stressing that the Peoples Democratic
Party would resist anti-women sentiments and all forms of brutality against
