The National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Samuel Anyanwu, has alleged that there are plans to assassinate him and some of his aides.
He said the plot was hatched because PDP National Working Committee (NWC) acted on the recommendations of a committee set up to probe the May 26 primaries in Ahiazu Mbaise state constituency Imo State.
Anyanwu, in a statement signed by his special Adviser on Media, Ikenna Onuoha, said some of a fresh primary issued the threat to kill him in a voice note. He alleged that since his emergence as PDP National Secretary, some desperate politicians in the state had used different plots, including blackmail and threats to run him down.
However, the Police Public Relations Officer in Imo State CSP Michael Abatam, who contacted, said the police were yet to receive a statement or petition to that effect. He said “I am not aware of it either as a statement or a petition. If its a petition, I know it will be routed through the normal process. But right now, i am not aware of any.”
