The Senator representing Abia South Senatorial district, Enyinnaya Abaribe, says the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC), is doing the same things it accused the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), of doing and even worse.
His comments come days after he was arrested and eventually released from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
According to him, he was incarcerated for doing nothing and detained alongside 11 Nigerians from all part of Nigeria.
He further accused the APC of attempting to arrest all those in the opposition, adding that the party should rather learn how to manage criticism.
On the issue of insecurity, Abaribe also decried the spate of killings in the nation, noting that part of reasons for his arrest was to prevent him and anyone else who stands for the truth, from speaking out.
He, however, said he will not be deterred from doing what he believes is the right thing.
