IBADAN—The South- West chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has

asked security agencies to go beyond just stopping the Action Congress

of Nigeria, ACN, youths' visit to Cuba, saying; "The youths should be

investigated to know the level of their involvement and knowledge of the

main mission for the trip."

Security agents at the Murtala Muhammed International , Lagos,

last Thursday night, reportedly stopped no fewer than 50 youths from

embarking on the trip, allegedly sponsored by Governor Rauf Aregbesola

of Osun State.

It was gathered that the youths were on their way to Cuba for the May

Day celebration as every year, labour leaders, activists and students go

to Cuba for May Day celebration.

It will be recalled that PDP had alleged that 50 youths were going to

Cuba for militancy training.

However, in a statement, PDP Zonal Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kayode

Babade, alleged that: "As against claim by the ACN government in Osun

State that the trip was for student activists to witness the May Day

celebration in Cuba, we have information that only seven out of the over

50 youths billed to embark on the trip were students. Other youths that

were part of the trip were drawn from Osun, Ekiti and Ondo states and

they are not student-activists."
