A branded Bus reportedly belonging to the All Progressive Congress has been impounded by men of the Nigeria Customs Service. 

Eyewitnesses said the bus was intercepted in Oron town around Anwana Esin road after a hot chase by the customs officers driving in Hilux truck. 

Several guns were seen transferred to the customs' truck as passers -by tried to make sense of the pandemonium the scene had created. 

The branded bus escorted by the custom's truck was later seen along airport road in Uyo around 3.17pm. 

No comments has been made on the matter by both the Nigerian Customs or the Nigeria Police Force. 

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had in October berated former Akwa-Ibom state governor, Godswill Akpabio over alleged plots with the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate, Nsima Ekere, to trigger violent crisis in Akwa-Ibom state, as a strategy to scuttle elections in the state. 

The party described such plots as wicked, infantile and cowardly, saying it is unfortunate that the lawmaker, who knows that “there is no way the APC can win in any election in Akwa-Ibom, is now allowing himself to be used by the APC as an agent of violence, against the state he once governed.” In a statement signed by the party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP lamented what it described as Akpabio’s frustration at his inability to cement his authority in the state since his defection from the PDP to the ruling party. Peter Obi’s choice as Atiku’s running mate excites Enugu residents “The PDP notes that Akpabio is hugely frustrated over his inability to penetrate the political structure of the state, which has rejected him since he crossed over to the APC, but expressed shock that he could lean towards violence against his own people, just to satisfy his paymasters in Abuja, as well as his selfish and egoistic tendencies. “

The party further claimed it was privy to a pact between Akpabio and some APC leaders, including the APC governorship candidate, Nsima Ekere, to “orchestrate strings of security issues, cause tension in the state and set the stage of violence ahead of the elections.” The statement continued: “Recently, a former aide of the governor, Mfon Udeme, who resigned and decamped to the APC reportedly had robbery attack at his residence. He reportedly called the police and reported the issue; only for Senator Akpabio and the APC leadership to organize a press conference in the state to allege that the state government was responsible, claiming an assassination attempt.
