Mark accuses APC leaders of plotting to kill him

16 February 2016, 12:34

Makurdi - Former Senate President David Mark has raised an alarm over alleged plot to assassinate him.

He fingered the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains in Benue State as those behind the plot.

Mark, who is set to slug it out with Daniel Onjeh of the APC in Saturday’s rerun election for Benue-South, made the allegation in a statement by his media aide, Paul Mumeh on Monday.

Mark in the statement said Onjeh, through his Campaign Director,  Okpokwu Ogenyi, in connivance with the state’s Deputy Governor, Benson Abounu, had hired the services of cultists to unleash terror in Benue South and in the process, eliminate him.

The statement also claimed that the cultists had hired one notorious Supreme Vikings Squad from Jos, the Plateau State capital, and another dreaded Black Axe in Makurdi, Benue State to execute the plot.

He said he has already alerted the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, of the purported plot to assassinate him.
