In a petition to the IGP, copied National Security Adviser to the President; Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission, Commissioner of Police, Sokoto State; Resident Electoral Commisisoner, Sokoto State; and Director State Security Services, Sokoto State, the PDP said the call for the arrest and prosecution of Maitafsir had become necessary to ensure peaceful conduct of the governorship and State House of Assembly elections slated for March 18.

The petition jointly signed by the PDP chairman and Secretary in Tambuwal LGA, Alhaji Umar Tsoho Tambuwal, and Alhaji Ibrahim Altine,  read: “We the leadership and members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) of Tambuwal Local Government chapter of Sokoto State, hereby make a report and bring to your esteemed attention the serious tension in Tambuwal Local Government Area following inflammatory statements made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman Umar Maitafsir.

“He made the offensive statement in a video that went viral on the 8th of March, addressing his supporters in Tambuwal town of Tambuwal Local Government where he instructed the members of his political party that in the forthcoming governorship election in Sokoto state, it will be ‘a do or die game’ in Tambuwal Local Government. They provided at least Ten (10) thugs with offensive weapons in every polling unit that will attack members of other political parties and went further to instruct the annihilation of any member of the PDP.

“Without the avoidance of doubt, Mr Maitafsir’s statements are inflammatory, hate speech and breach of peace signed by all political parties in Sokoto State that there will be peace during the governorship and State House of Assembly Elections.
