A plea for help
Gov Ifeanyi Okowa and his Deputy Gov. Kingsley Otuaro my elder brother, Don’t wait and send condolence messages to my family and Nigerian Union of Journalists, if hunger or Akpabio kill me in my hiding place in the creek.
Gov. Wike has provided security for Dr. Joy Nunieh in Government House, whose building was raided by about 30 policemen this morning over NDDC probe.
Gov. Okowa is a good man, perhaps, I don’t have anybody in government house to present my plight to him.
Rt. Hon. Solomon Funkekeme, Pls, use your powers to relocate me from my hideout in the creeks without food, light, powering my laptop and phones with Generator from Akpabio’s rogue/Assassin policemen marauding everywhere.
This is a passionate appeal. Despite my loud cry out, no paragraph statement has come from Delta government house over failed attempted assassination on me and other six journalists.
Recall that Senator Godswill Akpabio was also fingered over the death of the spokesman of the Ijaw Interest Advocates, Comrade Famous Belief Wonekiriebi, who was gruesomely murdered on the 18th of May.
The group had been the most vocal in the unveiling of the heavy corruption and looting that was allegedly perpetrated and led by the former governor of Akwa Ibom state.
