The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the Rivers South-east senatorial district rerun, Senator Magnus Abe, has alleged that Governor Nyesom Wike is after his life.

Abe who alleged this on Saturday  in a statement signed by his spokesperson, Mr. Parry Saroh Benson, expressed fear that his life could be in danger because of the level of conspiracy against him by the governor.

The senator said there had been a meeting of militants in Ogoni sponsored and masterminded by Wike against him. “There is an evil in Rivers State and I have chosen to speak against it. If anything happens to me, Nigerians, Rivers, Ogoni people and my family should hold Governor Nyesom Wike and his PDP people responsible because the threat against my life is too much.”

Abe, however, fears a situation where he could be attacked and Wike would paint it another. He noted that the Ogoni people love him and would not do such except outsiders or those who could be sponsored by the state government.

The senator, who represented Rivers South-east senatorial district from 2011 to 2015, and is also praying to be re-elected, expressed belief that the governor and PDP see him as a strong voice from APC that must be silenced at all cost. Abe stated that “all their plans would fail, as Ogoni people are now wiser.”
