My life is in serious danger, APC spokesman cries out!

16 November 2016, 16:38

Ondo - The Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress in Ondo State, Abayomi Adesanya, on Wednesday raised the alarm over threats to his life by unknown persons, Punch reports.

Adesanya said he had been receiving strange calls from some private numbers on his cell phone threatening to “teach him a lesson” by silencing him from being a consistent critic.

He said apart from the strange calls, some armed men in police bullet-proof uniform, had in the morning of Wednesday, November 9, discreetly came to his house in Akure.

Adesanya said the armed men asked one of his neighbours for his apartment in the storey building.

He appealed to security agents in the state to come to his aid by ensuring his safety and that of his property as the governorship election approaches in Ondo State.

Adesanya was a foundation member and House of Assembly Candidate in the defunct Action Congress in 2007 and was also a prominent member of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria.

The Area Commander in Akure, ACP Olatoye Durosimi, said that investigation by the police revealed that the armed men were not officers of the command.

This is happening few days after President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and the national leader of the All Progressives Congress,  Bola Tinubu boycotted the Ondo State governorship rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akure according to News24.

The rally was also shunned by all the party's governors in the South-West, except Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State.

The absence of the President and other national party leaders was not unconnected with the leadership crisis that had been rocking the party in the past few months.
