The decision to send the delegation to the Head of the DSS, was taken at a meeting held by the Leadership of the party.
The National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, who was among those at the meeting, confirmed the sending of the delegation to Lawal Daura.
He However, refused to give details of those in the delegation, and issues slated for discussion.
He said: “We have sent a delegation comprising our Governors to the DG of DSS, over the spate of arrests of our members.
“Yesterday, they picked up a former Governor of Benue State, Mr. Gabriel Suswam, and today, they arrested Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe. We cannot reach them, and even their loyalists cannot reach them.
“Now, the clampdown has indeed started. But how many of our members are they going to arrest, just because they (the government and the ruling party) are afraid of losing the (2019 Presidential) election?
“They should arrest all of us and put us into jail. Nigerians are watching, and the international community is also watching”
Recall, that Abaribe was arrested in Abuja, on Friday, at a popular Hotel located at Maitama District.
The DSS is yet to issue any statement on the reason behind the arrest
