From Ignatius Okpara, Abakaliki – Chairman of the troubled All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Ebonyi state chapter, Mr. Jerry Obasi, has raised the alarm over threat to his life by some hoodlums, who recently besieged his residence either kill or abduct him in Abakaliki.
He told newsmen that “the incident, took place at about 4:30a.m. last Friday, and drew the attention of neighbours and passers-by as the hoodlums carrying machetes and guns took to their heels on sighting the presence of policemen in the area.
Obasi had already petitioned the State Director, Directorate of State Service, DSS, and the state Commissioner of Police over the development.
According to him, the attempt on “my life might no be unconnected with his decision not to allow APGA collapse into the All Progressives Congress APC in the state.
The petition reads: “That was at about 4:30a.m. There was also a violent bang at my door with a sound of metals that was clearly that of a gun and machetes.
“That sound of corking justified my earlier suspicion that the metal sound at my door was of a gun.
“While some were leaving, I peeped from the window and saw some of them carrying machetes, locally made pistols, clubs and an avalanche of ropes and chains, an odour of Indian hemp smoking from these gangsters led by a politician (name withheld).’’
Obasi insisted that APGA in Ebonyi State was intact.
He vowed that no amount of intimidation and harassment by political hawks would destroy the structure and capacity of the party in the state.
