The police have sealed off the Lokoja residence of the former governor of Kogi state, Ibrahim Idris, where Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in the state are currently meeting.
The is coming barely 24 hours to the presidential and national assembly elections in the country.
According to The Cable, the road to the residence, which is behind the government house, was also been cordoned off, making it impossible for other PDP leaders to join the meeting.
A source at the meeting said the PDP stakeholders were perfecting their strategies for the elections when security operatives stormed the residence.
“As I speak to you, about 50 armed mobile policemen are mounting strategic position on the street and in front of the house,” the source told theCable.
“They just retreated but their trucks are parked within 100-meter radius.”
It is unclear why the police took action but opposition leaders have raised the alarm that there are plots to deploy security operatives in their stronghold to destabilise the PDP during the elections.
