The Ondo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has denied destroying posters belonging to the factional PDP governorship, Eyitayo Jegede.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had earlier accused the APC of destroying Jegede’s posters during their rally in Akure.

The PDP also alleged that some APC chieftains personally supervised the destruction of their candidate’s bill boards.

According to Punch, the Police Public Relations Officer, Ondo State Police Command, Femi Joseph, said there has been no report of such incident.

Joseph also said “Nobody has reported such a case to us. If they formally report to us, we shall take the necessary steps, but as I am speaking to you, we have not received the report of billboard destruction.”

Also, the Ondo APC in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Adesanya, said “We are law-abiding in APC, our members can’t do such. I have not seen any posters destroyed. If you go to the areas they are talking about today, you will see Jegede’s posters and billboards. It may be part of the plot to discredit our party.
