Ebonyi State Governor, David Nweze Umahi has urged security agencies to arrest former Senate President, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, and a former Governor of the State, Sen. Sam Egwu for questioning.
In a statement made available to The Eastern Updates by the Commissioner for information, Barrister Orji Uchenna said PDP’s style of gambling with allegations and trumping up criminal accusations is a clear manifestation of their servitude to falsehood.
According to the statement, ‘the publication signed by ‘Ebonyi PDP National Assembly caucus’ dated 18th May 2021 accused the State Government of arming Ebonyi youths with AK 47 to kill perceived enemies, but turned back to withdraw the allegations in their publication made through their National Publicity Secretary. ‘
‘The same PDP officials who were the last to see one Amos Ogbonna before they alleged his kidnap were the first to see him after he was allegedly released.”
‘The same PDP officials are making another claim of another case of abduction of one Anyigor Methuselah. Very soon they will ànnounce his release. This same group announced a case of murder of one Shedrack Nwode without mentioning who killed him.’
‘They alleged that Ebonyi youths attacked some PDP members without mentioning the suspects. What senseless blackmail! We demand therefore that Senator Sam Egwu, Sen. Anyim Pius Anyim, Elder Fred Udeogu, Ali Odefa, Hon. Linus Okorie should be quizzed by relevant Security Agencies to explain this confusion’ it read in part.
The Eastern Updates had recently reported that the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in Ebonyi State had petitioned the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, to hold Governor David Umahi responsible if anything untoward happens to any of their members in the state.
