The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, has ordered the shutdown of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) secretariat.
Arase also gave the party one week to resolve its crisis.
A statement issued by the Force Spokesperson, Olabisi Kolawole, said the IGP took the decision at a meeting with stakeholders of the party in Abuja.
“In a bid to finding a lasting solution to the protracted crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, convened a meeting with all stakeholders in his Abuja office on Friday and called for peace among the parties, particularly Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
“After exhaustive deliberations, in the meeting that was also attended by the Director-General of Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Musa Daura, each of the factions – Sen Ali Modu Sheriff’s and Sen Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi’s – agreed to nominate four representatives, each, for peace talks to arrive at a harmonized position within one week.
“The PDP Secretariat at Wadata House Plaza and Legacy House should be under lock and key pending the outcome of the resolution,” the statement said.
