The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State has said it has uncovered a plan by the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in the state to use a group, the Neighbourhood Watch, to rig the forthcoming local government election in the state.

The state chairman of the PDP, Chief Dan Orbih, made this known on Tuesday, during a campaign in Auchi, ahead of the local government election slated for April 20. He said the party had uncovered plots by the state government to buy uniforms and arms for members of the vigilance group to use for the election.

His words: “The PDP has uncovered a plot by the Adams Oshiomhole-led ACN government to deplore members of the Neighbourhood Watch to intimidate, harass and obstruct members of the PDP from casting their votes during the forthcoming election… Our informant also disclosed that the state government has bought large ammunition for the group to be used on the Election Day,” he alleged.

Orbih further disclosed that the state PDP had written a letter to the state Commissioner of Police, to inform him about the plot, adding that “it is our belief that the Neighbourhood Watch and other bodies formed by the state government for the purpose of rigging the council election are not known to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
