Anyim Pius Anyim, former President of the Nigerian Senate has alleged that his life is under threat over his refusal to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Anyim in an open letter on Monday, November 30, accused Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state of plotting to kill him, The Nation reported.
He notified the public, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, and the Department of State Services (DSS) over the alleged threat to his life.
The former Senate president said Umahi is seeking vengeance against him because he turned down the governor’s pleas to join him (Umahi) in the APC.
Anyim claimed the governor came to his house in the company of some high-profile people on November 20 to persuade him to become a member of the ruling party.
He said: “I pointed out to him that his approach has made it almost impossible for anybody to defect. He pleaded with me that if I cannot defect now, I should not attend any PDP meetings, and I said no, I must attend PDP meetings as long as I am in PDP.”
The politician further alleged governor Umahi who recently joined APC has declared war on everyone who has refused to defect with him.
