The Ahmed Makarfi led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotum Idris to arrest Ali Modu Sheriff.

The party also called on the police boss to prosecute Sheriff for contempt of court.

The Makarfi faction dismissed Justice Okon Abang’s ruling of Thursday, June 30, 2016, saying it was attempt to confuse the public.

A statement signed by the faction’s spokesman, Dayo Adeyeye said:

 “The former national chairman of our great party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has become an authority in the country with flagrant disobedience of the Nigerian Constitution, the Electoral Act and the PDP Constitution without being arrested or detained by security agencies. Is he above the law, if we may ask?

“You will recall that Senator Sheriff in collaboration with some APC governors and members invaded our party secretariat on Monday June 13, 2016, laying claims to a non-existing court order.

‘’He has started again after a competent court issued a judgment upholding the decision of our National Convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, which constituted the PDP National Caretaker Committee to pilot the affairs of the party for 90 days, and to conduct another convention that will elect new officers of the party.

‘’Following this, we are calling on the Police to do the needful by arresting Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, his co-travelers and Hon. Matthew Iduoriyekemwen for disobeying court judgment.”

The Makarfi led faction also said Ali Modu Sheriff an the party’s enemy.
