The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday said it had no hand in an alleged assassination attempt on the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.

This is contained in a statement issued on Thursday in Abuja by Mr Timi Frank the Acting National Publicity Secretary of APC.

The statement described the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) allegation that APC was behind the attempt on Ekweremadu’s life as "induced hallucination.’’

The PDP through its spokesman, Chief Olisa Metuh had alleged of a plot to exterminate Ekweremadu and other opposition leaders by the APC.‎

Metuh told newsmen on Wednesday that the lives of key opposition members were endangered.

He said that the PDP was yet to purge itself of cheap and manipulative strategies that helped to escort it to the doldrums that it is in today.

He said that the past 16 years of PDP's rule saw a Minister, Chief Bola Ige, politicians like Harry Marshall and Funso Williams assassinated with no attempt to unravel the mysteries that surrounded their deaths.

"It would therefore, be unfortunate for the PDP to elevate this strategic act it had perfected over the years to a political art or a propaganda tool,’’ the statement said.
