Former Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has raised the alarm about alleged plot by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole to kill him, according to Punchng.com.
The paper said Okorocha shared a text message purportedly sent to him by an operative of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, with its correspondent where he was intimated about the alleged plot.
The message read: “Your Excellency, I will like to give you this information. You must be careful. There is a plan to either eliminate you or sink you politically. They said you want to contest for the deputy senate presidency, a position that will give you an edge to contest as President in 2023, so everything must be done to get you out of the way.
“The arrowhead of this plot is Adams Oshiomhole. He has vowed that he will block you from realising your ambition and the first step towards achieving this was to make sure your preferred successor did not emerge. He has been having secret meetings with our Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, over your matter.
“One of my colleagues, Abdullahi, has been given the task to liaise with INEC and meet with one Aminu in the legal department of INEC and two powerful women in the department as well as some national commissioners over your matter.”
Recall that the two former governors are engulfed in bitter feud precipitated by the rancorous dispute that characterised APC primary in Imo State.
