The Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to thoroughly probe allegations by Mr. Friday Nwosu over threats to his life.
In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Enyinnaya Appolos, Ikpeazu frowned at what he described as “penchant for unnecessary and frivolous assertions without proof by politicians to curry attention.”
Nwosu had in a petition to the Inspector General of Police accused Governor Ikpeazu, Senator Theodore Orji, Hon Chinedum Orji and one Ekpe Ekpe of planning to assassinate him.
Quoting the petition to IGP by the Governor: “The said petition (by Nwosu) contains weighty criminal allegations that are capable of truncating the enduring peace in Abia State and should be investigated to ascertain the veracity of the allegations.
“The truthfulness or falsity of Nwosu’s grave allegations has its consequences in our criminal legal system, for those who plot to kill another, as well as those who offer false information to the police are culpable of known offences.”
