Former Senate President, David Mark, has writing to the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, alleging plots by the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains in Benue state to assassinate him ahead of the February 20, 2016, rerun election for Benue-South senatorial district.
Mark’s media aide, Paul Mumeh, in a statement, alleged that the APC candidate for the election Daniel Onjeh through his campaign Director, Okpokwu Ogenyi, in connivance with the state Deputy Governor, Benson Abounu, are alleged to have hired the services of cultists and some armed gangs to unleash terror in Benue-south and in the process target Senator Mark for elimination.
He said credible sources listed the cultists hired for the assassination to include but not limited to the notorious supreme Vikings squad from Jos, Plateau state as well as the dreaded Black Axe in Makurdi Benue state .
Already, Senator Mark has alerted the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Solomon Arase of the plot by the APC stalwarts in Benue to assassinate him.
In a petition to the IGP signed by his counsel, Mr. Ken Ikonne , it was alleged that one Okpokwu Ogenyi is the arrow head of the plot.
In the petition, Ikonne told the IGP that ” it is obvious that Ogenyi knows more about the assassination plot than he has revealed.
” Our client has therefore instructed us to petition you( IGP) to as a matter of urgency apprehend and interrogate Ogenyi to throw more light on the details of this grave assassination plot before he and his associates carry out the dastardly plot.”
Only yesterday , Police said to be attached to the State Deputy Governor Benson Abounu fired several gun shots into the family house of Senator Mark in Otukpo.
No reason was given for the unprovoked attack and no arrest has been made.
A couple of weeks ago, Benue State chairman of the APC Mr. Abbah Yaro was quoted as saying “if Senator Mark wants, let him win the election in seven out of the nine local government areas but no returning officer born of a woman will dare declare him.”
His PDP counterpart Dr. Emmanuel Agbo had petitioned the Nigeria Police Command over the unhealthy political activities of APC in Benue state ahead of the election and asked the authorities to prevail on them to allow peace reign.
