The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State have been accused of threatening to kill a chieftain of the All Progress Congress, APC, in Delta State, Chief Nelson Agbamuche.
Agbamuche in a statement personally signed and forwarded to newsmen on Thursday by him, alleged that some members of the Nigeria major opposition party have vowed to attack his supporters and family members.
Naija News understands that the alleged death threat was coming not long after the completion of Local Government election in the state. It could be recalled that the traditionally chief recently joined Nigeria’s ruling party after dumping the opposition party.
Agbamuche had alleged that some members of the PDP during the Saturday council election in the state, launched a violence attack on some APC loyalists. He said: “There have been a series of attacks on my properties and plots to eliminate me, leading to some unfortunate attacks on my supporters. The reason for the acrimony is because I choose to identify with a progressive party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) which has brought and still bringing development to my community.
“I thought it wise to join the APC having spent years in the PDP without any noticeable benefit to my people, but my former party chieftains won’t recognise my fundamental human rights of freedom o association guaranteed in our constitution and the African charter”, he stated.
Agbamuche further alleged that the opposition party are using thugs and local securities to attack him and some members of his new party (APC). Speaking on his verdict on the alleged death threat, he said, “I have already petitioned the Inspector General of Police on this matter, having lodged formal complaints at the state level with no visible action taken”.
APC stated this in a statement released by the party’s Board of Trustees after their emergency meeting on Thursday, Naija News reports.
