Ikpeazu: My human rights are being denied

06 July 2016, 06:30

Abuja - Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state has blasted the government for denying him his basic human rights through an Abuja court while describing the political logjam in his state as atomistic, a situation where the state is at war with itself, which is causing unnecessary tension, Vanguard reports.

Ikpeazu lamented the confusion being caused to people in the state by the political tension which he blamed on the ambition of one man.

He further sensationally suggested that what was happening in the state was a coup d'etat against him and the state.

"The Abuja High Court ruling denied me of the right to exercise my fundamental human right, which is the right of appeal," he said.

News24 Nigeria reported that the Niger Delta Avengers yesterday accused the All Progressives Congress of plotting to remove Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, to replace him with Uche Ogah who is loyal to the party.
