Senator Magnus Abe’s Campaign Organisation has alleged that the frequent call by the Rivers State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), led by its Chairman, Mr. Felix Obuah, for the withdrawal of Abe’s security aides, is a plot to pave the way for his assassination.
In a press statement issued yesterday and signed by the spokesperson of its Media Committee, Mr Parry Saroh Benson, the committee said Obuah’s “persistent hammering on the security details of Abe gives cause for concern” saying “that was not the first time he (Obuah) had commented bitterly on what he perceived to be adequate security for Senator Abe.
It said Obuah had done that during the first legislative re-run election campaign.
“The attention of the media committee of Senator Magnus Abe Campaign Organisation has been drawn to comments by the chairman of PDP, Rivers State chapter, Mr Felix Obuah on the size of security details attached to Abe”, it said.
“Ordinarily, we would have ignored his verbal diarrhoea as coming from somebody lacking intellectual acumen and a product of a sick party that catapulted him to the position of a state party chairman, but his persistent hammering on the security details of Senator Abe gives cause for concern,” it noted.
“That was not the first time he had commented bitterly on what he perceived to be adequate security for Abe. He had done that during the first legislative re-run election campaign”, the committee added.
“This time around he is peeved, frustrated and disappointed that his hidden agenda did not work because of the presence of competent police operatives that beefed up security around Abe,” it noted.
The committee further said: “This is coming at the heels of insecurity in the state of which Rivers people have fingered the PDP led by Obuah as responsible. Besides, Obuah had never been a democrat and his approach to politics had been of intimidation. Today, Omoku lies desolate because of his style of politics, where only those killed by the so called cultists were only APC members.”
