The All Progressives Congress on Sunday said it would take legal actions against the National Chairman of the Reformed-APC, Alhaji Buba Galadima, and other members of the group.
The National Legal Adviser of the Adams Oshiomhole-led APC, Babatunde Ogala, disclosed this in a statement made available to Punch.
He said this in reaction to the formation of the splinter group, R-APC. Aggrieved members of the New Peoples Democratic Party bloc and other aggrieved members of the ruling APC had on Thursday last week announced the formation of the R-APC.
Ogala accused Galadima and other R-APC leaders of impersonation, fraudulent interpretation, conducts likely to breach public peace and breach of trademark and infringement of copyright.
The APC also hinted possible arrest of leading members of the R-APC by security agencies.
The legal adviser stated, “For the infringement so far committed by Mr Galadima and the odium he has brought upon the APC brand, we will be seeking civil redress against his person and that of his group.
“With respect to the criminal aspect of his conduct, we will be notifying the appropriate authorities to do the needful.”
According to Ogala, the press conference and statement issued by Galadima “were reminiscent of the televised military address issued after a successful execution of a coup d’état” which had become the order of the day before the return of democracy.
Ogala accused the Galadima-led R-APC of resorting to self-help instead of seeking legal redress.
He said if members of the group felt strongly about events that took place during the recently concluded national convention of the APC, they should have approached the court.
