Aftermath Of Delta Council Polls: SARS Arrest APC Members, As Emerhor Kicks

Operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS have arrested four All Progressive Congress (APC) youths in Evwerni community, Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta state.

The leaders of the All Progressives Congress in Delta State and the party 2015 governorship candidate, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor disclosed this on Wednesday while condemning the arrest and harassment of some APC members and chiefs by SARS.

While reacting to the arrest of four youths of the party at Evwerni community on Monday night by SARS, Emerhor urged the police not allow themselves be used by politicians.

It was gathered that the arrest of the four boys which was allegedly mastermind by a PDP lawmaker in the area, Mr Samuel Mariere threw the once peaceful community into crisis as the youths took to the street to protest, barricading major access to the town.

Emerhor, who confirm the arrest of the APC members in a telephone chat with our correspondent said; “They came to Evwerni to carry some boys, I think it’s Mr Mariere and his PDP people that did it.

“They invited SARS to come and carry them, maybe they didn’t hear that we won’t participate in their rerun election.

“They came and carried four boys in Evwerni community and I learnt they went to Ominimini’s place also. But we have freed them; we called the State Police Commissioner who immediately acted.

“Their actions threw the community into pandemonium, but I don’t know if they went to other communities.

“We need to condemn this, we should not play politics with human lives, and harassing people with police will not advance peace in Delta state.

“The men of SARS should not allow themselves to be drag into partisan politics,” he added.
