The National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Samuel Anyanwu, has raised an alarm over threats to assassinate him and some of his aides.
Anyanwu made this revelation through a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Ikenna Onuoha, stating that the plan was conceived because the 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.
He alleged some desperate politicians in the state had used different plots, including blackmail and threats, to run him down since his emergence as PDP National Secretary.
He noted that some people were pained by the cancellation and rescheduling of a fresh primary and issued the threat to kill him through a voice note.
He said some people planned to destroy notable public structures and hack anyone directly or indirectly linked to his political camp, and threatened to shut down the Imo State office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)
Police Public Relations Officer in Imo, CSP Michael Abatam, when contacted, said the police were yet to receive a statement or petition to that effect.
