He stated that the plan of the APC was already known and that to avoid any violence, PDP members remained calm and unprovoked.
“APC Supporters are pushing this ‘choreographed’ video of a few APC thugs and children who were mobilised to the entrance of the PDP Campaign Rally in Okuta, where over 2000 people showed up. These are the facts.
“About 50 meters to the venue of the rally, the mobilised APC elements, who were about 60 began chanting obscenities. The PDP supporters were in their thousands.
“To avoid any violence, based on instructions from the campaign, the PDP supporters in the area ignored the few APC supporters and went straight to the Emir’s palace.
“At the Emir’s palace, the huge and enthusiastic crowd began rooting and chanting for Bukola Saraki. The Emir of Okuta himself spoke glowingly of the Senate President and apologised on behalf of the mobilised miscreants.
“The Emir explained that the APC supporters had been fed with drugs to prompt their misbehaviour.
“The Senate President then proceeded to the rally, where he addressed a huge and enthusiastic crowd of supporters.”
