The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has accused top politicians in Bayelsa State of stockpiling arms in different local government areas ahead of the general elections.

“Any plot to subvert the will of the people must be met with the full weight of the law. Our votes must count,” Nabena said in a statement issued today.
