The All Progressives Grand Alliance has alleged that sensitive documents and the sum of N19m were stolen from its national secretariat in Abuja.
National Chairman of the party, Chief Victor Oye, who made the allegation while taking over the party national secretariat in Abuja on Monday, also said the crisis rocking the party would not affect its chances in the forthcoming Anambra governorship election.
Speaking with journalists at the party’s national secretariat, where all the national leaders and all the state chairmen of the party were in attendance to show solidarity, Oye alleged that a rival group stole N19m and other sensitive documents from his office.
He said he had reported the incident to the police.
“The real owners of the party are here. We have come to consolidate on the gains we have achieved. What happened last week was shameful, intolerable, wicked and illegal.
“They came when we were not there because we had closed from the office. They broke into my office and took away N19m, which was saved for the party primaries. They also took important documents away.
“These people are nothing but hoodlums, criminals and their actions are intolerable. We are the real owners of APGA,” Oye said.
When asked what the party would do to retrieve the alleged stolen items and money, he said, “The case is pending before Police, they will surely appear before police and get back our N19m and other sensitive documents they stole. They said they took it away. No, they stole it.”
