National Coordinator People Democratic Party (PDP) Youth Frontier, Austin Okai, has raised alarm over alleged plot to assassinate him.
Okai, in a statement alongside a four minute, forty second video (4:40) allegedly, accused the Kogi State government and its officials of plans to eliminate him for not succumbing to series of persecutions been carried out to silence him
The PDP youth leader said photos on social media showing that he was stabbed to death by one, ‘Ibrahim M Okene’, was the handwork of agents of the state hired to carry out the nefarious act.
Okai informed the police top heirachy,the DG DSS, NIA and other relevant security agencies to take the act as ”an act of murder by Kogi State government”.
He said despite his escape of series of assassination attempt and arrest over his hue and cry on the maladministration in Kogi, he was detained and charged to court by the State Government and yet wanted to take his life, an act which he considered as prejudicial and extra judicial
Okai appealed to the law enforcement agencies to protect him as his freedom and safety was been trampled upon both within and outside the state.
“I have written to all relevant human rights agencies both within and outside the country to assist in that regard as Kogi Government and its officials are averse to constructive criticisms, yet refused to take the welfare of Kogi workers and pensioners on the priority list of its administration
“The recent death threat to my life was one too many. Those involved at various level are paid agents of the state government and it’s officials” he added.
He insisted that the state government and the law enforcement agents should be held responsible in the event of any negative development or act against him directly and indirectly.
