Rivers APC Chieftain, Eze Alleges Threat To Life



A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Rivers State, Chief Chukwuemeka Eze has petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari and the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu over alleged plots to assassinate him.

Eze, a loyalist of transport minister, Rotimi Amaechi’s in the intra-party crisis in Rivers State traced the plot to the Magnus Abe camp in the party.

A response on the allegation is still being awaited from Senator Abe or any of his aides.

In the petition, Eze claimed that the plot was hatched because of his loyalty to Buhari and Amaechi as against the desires of the Abe camp which it claimed is aligned towards the interest of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the state.

He said:

“Senator Magnus Abe has been angry that I exposed how he teamed up with elements within and outside Rivers State to ensure that APC in Rivers state did not field a candidate in the just concluded general elections and how he has ceaselessly castigated and impugned the personality of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the immediate past Governor of Rivers state and the incumbent Minster of Transportation.

“Senator Abe and his group got more incensed by the recent press statement by me, exposing how he (Abe) is assisting Governor Wike of Rivers state to recruit other Nigerians to malign and destroy the person of the Minster of Transportation, so that he will not be renominated by President Buhari into his second term tenure. An exercise in futility. 

“Abe and his cronies have used Facebook and other social media platforms to cast aspersions on my person and even issued threatening press statements both in the past and now in a recent one reporting me to the NWC of APC  titled, ‘THE URGENT NEED FOR THE NATIONAL WORKING COMMITTEE (NWC) OF THE ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS (APC) TO CALL CHIEF EZE CHUKWUEMEKA EZE, THE POLITICAL GRIFTER AND HIS SPONSOR, THE TRANSPORTATION MINISTER TO ORDER’, issued by a phony visionless group ironically named Rivers State APC Visionary Media Team on behalf of Abe.

“To expose their intentions, the group, through one Augustine, an associate of Senator Magnus Abe and speaking for his cohorts, called me on Saturday in morning with cell number 08183636808 to say that they have set up a militia committee to monitor and kill me and all members of my family for what I am writing about their principal, Senator Abe. Using his exact words he said “you can no longer run because wherever you are we will fish you out and deal with you accordingly. We have taken enough of your madness. You may wish to report this to the IGP but he can’t secure or save you. You will know why we are called the Vultures”.

“Though, I have reported this issue to the Rivers State Police Command appealing to them that not minding that as much as my life and that of members of my family are in the hands of God to see what they can do to ascertain why Abe and his cohorts want to kill me and eliminate my entire family. 

“Eze also highlighted that should anything happen to him or any member of his family, the Police Command should do the needful by arresting Abe to explain why we should be harmed for standing by a man (Amaechi) who made him politically.

Eze not minding reporting this issue appealed to both President Muhammadu Buhari and the Acting Inspector General of Police, Abubakar Adamu Mohammed, to assist to investigate and secure his life and that of his family before any harm is done to them, considering the security challenges both in Rivers state and the nature of the men we are dealing with”, Eze said.
