Binabo accuses Bayelsa governor of trying to kill him

24 November 2015, 12:00

Bayelsa - A former acting governor of Bayelsa State, Nestor Binabo, has accused the Bayesla State Governor Seriake Dickson of trying to take his life, Punch reports.

Binabo, who spoke in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital, on Monday, said Dickson, while addressing Non-Governmental Organisations inside the Banquet Hall, in the city, publicly declared that he (Binabo) was his greatest enemy in the Sagbama Local Government Area.

Binabo handed over power to Dickson in 2012.

The Peoples Democratic Party has however denied Binabo’s allegation, describing it as callous.

The Director of Publicity, Restoration Campaign Organisation of the party, Jonathan Obuebite, said that there was no time Dickson addressed any gathering where he threatened that “Nestor Binabo was his greatest enemy as alleged.”

Obuebite said any attempt to link the governor to such allegation was not only wicked but callous political orchestration, which should be condemned.
