The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State, has asked the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, to investigate the role of his officers and men in the violence that occurred during the general elections.

Speaking on Wednesday at the party’s secretariat in Yenagoa, the Chairman of PDP, Moses Cleopas, said that the activities of the army deployed in Brass, Nembe and Southern Ijaw, LGAs should be queried by the military.

He wondered why the army had kept sealed lips on the killing of two PDP members in Southern Ijaw LGA without provocation by soldiers.

He further took a swipe at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the state, wondering why the commission declared 3 constituencies in Brass, Ogbia and Southern Ijaw already won by PDP candidates as inconclusive.

Cleopas, however, described victory of some candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as temporary and vowed that his party would retrieve them in the tribunals.

The party leaders said that in Nembe all PDP members were chased away from Bassambiri, where APC candidates were declared winners.
