The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it has alleged fresh plots against the leadership of the party.
It says the plan involves a huge amount of money in US dollars which are being ferried into Nigeria by some people who will then claim they were hired as cash couriers by APC leaders.
The party in a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the funds are to be ferried into the country through the Seme or Idi-Iroko, or any other border posts, anytime.
It said those who orchestrated the importation of the raw cash from a West African nation have also tipped off the security agents at the border posts to watch out for those who are bringing in a colossal amount in US dollars.
''Their plan is that once the couriers - who have been coached on their assignment - are arrested by Nigerian security agents, they will point accusing fingers at some top APC leaders who supposedly commissioned them to bring in the money to be used for the forthcoming elections.
''The plotters of the evil plan will then order the arrest of the leaders, with a view to damaging their credibility and destabilizing them ahead of the elections,'' APC said.
The party said as many evil plots as are being hatched by desperadoes who are bent on setting the country ablaze just to realize their naked ambition will be exposed, because Nigerians within and outside the government, have decided to be extra vigilant.
