The state Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Ini Okopido, and the APC National Youth Caucus Chairman, Mr Iniobong John, have blamed the Peoples Democratic Party for the attempted attack on the former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, in his country home at Essien Udim Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
The Punch reports that a statement was made by the media aide of the senator, Mr Anietie Ekong, in Uyo on Tuesday, confirmed the attack. He explained that 10 unidentified gunmen stormed Akpabio’s residence and shot sporadically causing a stampede among those who were attending a crucial political meeting in the house.
Ekong, who eulogised the security operatives for their quick intervention that halted the attack, however, noted that a retired Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Mr Udom Ekpoudom, was seen making frantic calls for increased security to help repel the attack.
Okopido said the “unprovoked attack” on Akpabio’s residence was unwarranted.
