The attention of the Rivers State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bro Felix Obuah has been drawn to plot by some leaders of the main opposition political party in Rivers State to frame him up over the killings in Omoku, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of the State on January 1, 2018.
The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP therefore raises alarm over the plot to frame up its State Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah, who is mourning over the sad incident and death of his relatives.
The plot according to a statement by the Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was revealed through a source in a meeting of some leaders of the main opposition political party held on Wednesday January 3, 2018, between the hours of 8pm – 11pm in Port Harcourt.
The source also revealed that they are allegedly pressurising security agencies to frame up the State PDP chairman, Bro Obuah as the sponsor of the violence that led to the death of over 10 persons on January 1, 2018, including 6 relatives of Rivers PDP chairman.
They are allegedly doing everything to frame up the PDP chairman ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Bro Felix Obauh has spoken out loudly and forcefully against all forms of violence. Because of Bro Obuah’s clear stance against cult violence, he was last year singled out for praise by traditional rulers, opinion moulders and religious leaders in the State.
He coordinated stakeholders in Omoku to intervene and help the area achieve peace.
According to information available to the PDP, part of their plans it to arrest some youths of Omoku take them to Abuja and force them to frame up Bro Felix Obuah as sponsor of violence in Omoku.
Part of the evil plot is the shameful, provocative, misleading, malicious and childish appearance on a live radio programme in Port Harcourt, the State capital, in the morning hours of Thursday January 4, 2018 by one of the APC leaders.
Bro Felix Obuah has repeatedly declared that he has no link with any cult group or cultist whatsoever.
In the face of this evil and deliberate act to cause breach of the peace in the State, the PDP warns that any attempt in whatsoever disguise not minding the social status of those behind it will be resisted with its full might.
“It’s dangerous not to allow the sleeping dog lie because we cannot, we repeat, cannot be intimidated no matter what”, the PDP warned, stressing that both those behind the plot and those being used to prosecute the evil must think twice and desist forthwith.
The PDP wishes by this alert to inform the security agencies and all relevant authorities to hold leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, responsible for anything that happens to its State Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah
The PDP condoles with its State chairman, Bro Felix Obuah over the death of his inlaw, Augustine Ordu, three children and two other relatives in the new year day killings in Omoku and prayed that God would give him the fortitude to bear the loss.
