Plot To Assassinate Atiku: Eze Urges FG, Security Agencies To Investigate, Unravel The Perpetrators, Their Sponsors And Punish Them
…..Counsels against any untoward act against Atiku, Obi, Tinubu or any of our Political Leaders
Erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has condemned in the strongest of terms the recent attack on the Yola residence of the Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Alh. Atiku Abubakar, by a galere of marauding scoundrels on a clear mission to snuff life off the former Vice President on the orders of their overloads.
In a statement made available to the media, the APC chieftain said the cowardly and dastardly attack signals a palpable gloom of apprehension that may have been schemed by some undemocratic forces and class, to capture the entire civil society in a bid to once more usurp democracy and stifle the desire of majority in the pursuit of a selfish, private vendetta.
Recall that one Jibrilla Mohammed was arrested at the residence of the former Vice President in Yola, and while being interrogated by security agencies he confessed to being a member of the dreaded Boko Haram sect and revealed a plot to bomb Atiku’s residence, along with faculties at the American University of Nigeria Yola that belongs to Atiku, as well as the Modibbo Adama Central Mosque located at Yola town
All these plots aimed at stifling Atiku’s life and crippling his business empire should be condemned by all and sundry.
Eze expressed concern over the level of insecurity that has continued to permeate the country, describing the situation as heart-wrenching and grossly discomforting not minding billions of Naira alleged to have been spent over the security challenges facing this nation.
“Insecurity in Nigeria has successfully climaxed to a level where farmers can no longer go to their farms and people can no longer travel safely without the care the fear of attacks thereby rubbishing the Federal Government declaration of emergency on food security as a mere talk
The country seems to be retrogressing to the pre-modern age where life was brutish, nasty, and short”, Eze noted.
He alerted security agencies to up their game and ensure nothing happens to Atiku, Obi, or Tinubu especially now that Nigerians are looking forward to a rerun election.
“Security must be beefed up around Atiku as the ‘Waziri Adamawa’ is not an ordinary fellow but a political staunch and notable heavyweight who still has so much to offer the country.”
Assuring the former Vice President of God’s continued divine protection, Chief Eze called for a thorough investigation into the matter to unravel those faceless cowards behind the horrendous plot and bring them to justice to deter others who may be attracted by hate to engage in similar crimes.
