Gov Akpabio and The Loose Cannon In Akwa Ibom State‏

27 Apr

Written by
OduduAbasi Nicolas Edet

“Your Excellency, like I Imagewrote in my last letter, going after me(or my family members), will not solve the problem and I am not afraid to say it like it is.” – Idiongo Clayton-Thomas Udoh

So it is common knowledge even among die-heart supporters of Gov. Godswill Obot Akpabio and his government, that whoever opposes or complains against Godswill Obot Akpabio stands the risk of loosing life or that of a family member!

Whoever would have thought that at the rate in which they have espoused Godswill Obot Akpabio’s infallibility, that any of them would admit to the obvious truth? Whoever would have believed that the likes of Idiongo Clayton-Thomas Udoh, a fellow Annang with Godswill Obot Akpabio, would inadvertently admit that the likes of Mrs. Udonwa was murdered because her son indicated his intention to contest election against Godswill Obot Akpabio? Whoever would have thought that sectionalism and sycophancy could give way to truth? This is where personal set-backs even if they do not match the personal tragedies suffered by many who have lost lives and loved ones to Godswill Obot Akpabio’s criminal-minded ambition, have forced genine thoughts to coincide with the truth long spoken by “Thompson Essien and Co”. Not even the treacherous Ibibio men lined at Mr. Akpabio’s side at Miami, who at various times will deny the fact in evidence – that hundreds of Ibibio people have been murdered by agents of Godswill Obot Akpabio!!
Indeed when Mr. Idiongo Clayton-Thomas Udoh’s first open letter to Governor Godswill Obot Akpabio appeared in this forum, my first reaction was ‘let Idiongo now taste a little bit of the insidiousness, untruths, bribery, mayhem, outright lies, victimization, insincerity, and criminality which governor Akpabio and his government have been dishing out to others”. On this second note to a man – Godswill Obot Akpabio – who is desperate to make the population believe his every word, words punctuated by lies upon lies upon lies whenever Mr. Akpabio opens his mouth, even over the simplest thing there is to talk about, I am beginning to feel sympathetic towards Mr. Udoh; minus his still condescending attitude towards the evil that is certainly Godswill Obot Akpabio.
A toad does not run in the daytime for nothing!!!
Aniekan Umanah who is reported to have stolen the intellectual property belonging to Clayton-Thomas Udoh could not have done that if Mr. Akpabio had set down good examples for his followers to copy. As it is, nobody among the crowd of not only yes-sir-men-and-women but the crowd of lie-learners and practitioners, cultist hoodlums and deceivers; are learning at the feet of a master. That master is Godswill Obot Akpabio. Has anyone ever wondered why Godswill Obot Akpabio’s past life before he became an official of Akwa Ibom State government has remained untouchable and secret till this day? Idiongo Clayton-Thomas Udoh’s experiences with the men who rule Akwa Ibom State is a little tip of the iceberg of evil which prevails amongst the men and women who do and copy from their master and leader.
Out of curiosity I watched Godswill Obot Akpabio’s speeches at Miami on U-tube. With the yes-sir, and the clapping and the cheering of the yes-men and women who clapped and chaired over Mr. Akpabio’s every word, the smooth talking Godswill Obot Akpabio failed to notice the stone-faced, un-cheering and un-clapping men lined closer to his podium. Godswill Obot Akpabio must have left that meeting very satisfied at his performances; after-all there were retinues of sycophants to feed his faltering ego. Like his fellow Nigerian criminal, the 419 scam artist, investigated by ABC News on the same U-tube line up with Mr. Akpabio’s speech, Mr. Akpabio’s is a smooth talker. It is common knowledge that smooth talkers are deceitful people. And like that Nigerian was exposed; Mr. Akpabio will hide his face similarly when his scams, lies and insidiousness find enough public challenges and courtroom presence.
Godswill Obot Akpabio was so involved in his lies at Miami, that the men who did not smile escaped his approval-seeking eyes. When the women and some of the men cheered his “tafioka” remarks, did they bother to ask him if that word was Annang, Oron or Eket not to mention Ibibio, Akpabio’s target of hate ? Are these not the component communities of Akwa Ibom State? Do they lack words with which Mr. Akpabio could have used to express his sentiments? This preference for everything foreign to the State is greatly reflected in the inflated contracts which Godswill Obot Akpabio awards to outsiders and foreigners who promise to hide his loot. A rehearsed performance based on lies is what Godswill Obot Akpabio does best. All smooth talkers become good at what they do – lies dissemination – as they move from practice to performance. I thought that Mr. Akpabio and his lieutenants had dismissed the power and the effect of social media on their governance. Yet here we are, Godswill Obot Akpabio is complaining bitterly over the things written about him on the “Internet”. What a lying and deceitful bunch. Which one are we supposed to believe – that our writings are meaningless or that Mr. Akpabio has felt the weight of such writings?
Back to the Miami crowd – did the cheering men and women notice the governor’s use of the words ” – – – – whether these are the people we sent to the United States”? That laden insult could not be missed by any person or group free to think for himself or themselves. Can it be asked of Mr. Akpabio and of his cheering crowd of supporters who and how many people governor Akpabio or his government have sent to the United States? What Godswill Obot Akpabio fails to understand is that many of the people in the United States came here through their personal efforts, not on scholarships, not through parents, and certainly not through Godswill Obot Akpabio or by his government. Such outrageous lies have marked Godswill Obot Akpabio and his government from inception. This is the reason it has become pertinent to research Godswill Obot Akpabio’s past life in order to find out the type of man he is. That he cannot be trusted has been established beyond every doubt. His words and deeds have proven Mr. Akpabio’s insidious character – that his con-artist performances were not learned after he became governor. Godswill Obot Akpabio must have grown up the con artist he is today!!!!
When the orgy of lies and crimes practiced by Gov. Godswill Obot Akpabio and his troupe become public knowledge, as they soon will be, even those who worship at Akpabio’s feet will cringe in horror. Never in the history of Akwa Ibom State has there ever been a more insidious set of men and women at the governing helm. When it comes to disseminating truth or fearing God or governing well or practicing a semblance of democracy or being personally honest or sincere or patriotic, Godswill Obot Akpabio and the men and women who work with him, follow him, eat with him, laugh with him or sympathize in any manner with the governor, are the absolute vipers in a vipers’ brood. Slithering like snakes over each other, attempting to out-do each other as competitors seeking to win favors with their master, these men and women present the very picture of smoothness as that smoothness which oil polishes well smoothed cemented floors. Be careful, it is slippery!!!!!
Water stands out from oil and oil from water. That is the niche that Godswill Obot Akpabio and his lying followers cannot hide away from a discerning public free enough to think for itself. Godswill Obot Akpabio’s lies are as bare as his insinuation of “these are the people we sent to the United States”. What a man!!!! What a pathological liar!!!!!!!
Akwa Ibom State falsehood practitioners and disseminators, despite having lived in the democratic countries of America and Europe have continued to feed the ego and lies of Godswill Obot Akpabio as if they have never heard of what befell others in whose footsteps Godswill Obot Akpabio has walked, is still walking and will continue to walk through out his life-time on earth. It was difficult for Sanni Abacha, Mobutu Sese Seko, Idi Amin, apartheid practitioners led by Verwoerd and co, to mention the vicinity closest to Mr. Akpabio, to give up evil practices. A few voices of truth continuously heard, was what it took to bring down the evil empires led by these men. Thank goodness there are still a few persistent voices nudging at Mr. Akpabio’s insidiousness, lies and criminality!!!!!!!!
It is the unquestioning attitude and the morbid fear of what the powerful may do to the less powerful, the greed for political power and wealth which have kept the likes of Godswill Obot Akpabio and his lies on top of a suffering people. Such attitudes are born out of timidity and backwardness, when it be remembered that most who live in the civilized societies of Europe and America, and who worship Godswill Obot Akpabio as depicted by some at Miami, went there to seek the Golden Fleece. It is the Golden Fleece seekers who are most corroborating in the lies told by Godswill. It is for the same reason of subservient obedience, even to evil and corrupt authority, which has kept our people down and enabled other sections of Nigeria, even less civilized than Akwa Ibom state, to stereotype and to lord it over our people. For confirmation one can look at the performances of those Akwa Ibom State men and women in federal legislatures. The State legislature has an established pattern of house-servant subservience to whoever is governor, particularly when led by sycophants as has been the case with the current and immediate past Assemblies. Brazen lies as Mr. Akpabio uttered in Miami (quoted above) were left unchallenged. If anyone asked Mr. Akpabio how many of those he referred to as having been sent to America by them, were sent by Mr. Akpabio personally or by his government, such a questioner was never shown in the pictures.
Throughout history it has always taken long struggles to change attitudes, win freedom, and stand up for what is right. Standing Godswill Obot Akpabio for trial in a court room, in a society noted for its Rule of Law preference, is one such struggle. It will take time. Luckily there are a few voices of TRUTH patient enough, willing enough, sympathetic enough to the orphans, widows and widowers robbed of their loved ones and bread winners , who are prepared to wait for as long as it will take to bring Godswill Obot Akpabio to justice and thus teach his followers that God is Truth; and that HE still Exists, still does what HE has been reported to have done for Israel. Godswill Obot Akpabio referred to having hired Israeli intelligence to unearth his atrocities in Akwa Ibom State. What a mockery of that is just and intelligent!!!!!!!!!
It will be the same few voices of truth, castigated at Miami by Godswill Obot Akpabio and his bestial followers, like the voices of Nelson Mandela and Gandhi and Martin Luther King, who will bring about the downfall of a governor and government built on hatred, lies and criminality!!!!!!!!!

Gov. Akpabio: In Search Of Scapegoats in the United State.

25 Apr

Akpbio hunting innocent people in US

Written By Eno Adams

In the last few days, several headlines in Nigerian newspapers have
reported on a grant of application by a US federal court in the state of
Georgia instituted by Gov. Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State against
two US based
indigenes of the Akwa Ibom state, Messrs Thompson Essien and Nicholas
Edet and their
organization, Ibibio People’s Union (IPU). According to an Uyo based Weekly
Insight newspaper published last Sunday, the two gentlemen are asked
to “produce
documents and information, and to provide sworn testimonies, relating to
criminal investigations into their activities in the United States and Akwa
Ibom State” regarding March 22, 2011 violence that claimed twelve lives and
caused “extensive” damage to property in the state including the state
campaign headquarters of President Jonathan. The motivation of the state
governor is clear as summarized in this report’s headline: Akpabio Tackles
Opposition Forces Abroad… For him it is worth spending millions of dollars
of the people’s money to chase shadows instead of investing in
people-oriented programs.

The event of March 22, 2011 was a disaster waiting to happen. The public
was aware of it, names were named and some of them are still on the
Akwa Ibom state government
payroll. The state Director of State Security Service (SSS) was notified of
it ahead of it eight days earlier yet he did nothing to abort the disaster.

In a letter dated March 14, 2011, Bar. Francis EFanga, had predicted just
eight days before then. in the letter to the State Director of State
Security Service (SSS) based on instructions of his clients, [Our
instructions are that] “the Peoples Democratic Party (hereinafter called,
“the PDP”) led government of Governor Godswill Akpabio in AKWA IBOM STATE
has turned mere political campaigns into a harvest of bloodshed.
Until the
flag off of the ACN Campaigns on Wednesday the 9th of March 2011, there was
relative peace in Akwa Ibom State, save for the sporadic incidents of
kidnappings, assassinations and armed robberies which have been the feature
of the State since 2008. That condition enabled the PDP to launch her
campaigns freely and without molestation in several Local Government Areas
of the State.” He added, “The PDP and the government suddenly turned
violent and accentuated the worsened state of insecurity in Akwa Ibom State,
once the ACN joined the race.”

That letter directly implicated the former military administration to the
state, retired Air Commodore Indongesit Nkanga who was the director general
of Akpabio’s re-election campaign. “Following the unprecedented crowd that
showed support to the ACN at the flag off, a jittery Governor Godswill
Akpabio telephoned the Director General of his re-election campaign, the
former military Administrator of the State, Air CommodoreIdongesit Nkanga and
chided him for misleading the PDP and the Governor himself that the ACN had
no support in the State…

At the end, they both reasoned that they had lost
the forthcoming election and that the only way to stem off defeat was to
kill the ACN Governorship candidate, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe.”

When Sen. Akpanudoedehe and ACN campaign train arrived Ikot Ekpene to
address supporters they were ambushed. With ACN and Sen. Akpanudoedehe
supporters
were killed, a chain re-action followed. That started what the state
governor now crosses the Ocean several thousands of miles away to chase
down his number one critics to “depose” them in the United States in a
matter they had nothing to do with it. The letter to the state director of
SSS warned of many hotspots including Ikot Ekpene where the violent ambush s
tarted.

Posted below is a copy of the letter posted on different fora
including the Ibom_Forum on
Tuesday March 15, 2011. Please pay particular attention to the outline
titled: IKOT EKPENE, ESSIEN UDIM, IKA, ORUK ANAM AND UKANAFUN LOCAL
GOVERNMENT AREAS.

When you are done with reading this letter, make your own conclusion as to
who really masterminded the event of March 22, 2011 and who should have
been investigated and prosecuted long time ago.

Our Ref: ACN. FEC. O1. 03. 2011

ORIGINATING OFFICE : LAGOS.

THE STATE DIRECTOR,

STATE SECURITY SERVICES,

UYO – AKWA IBOM STATE.

Dear Sir,

THE VIOLENCE AND CONTINUING DETERIORATION OF SECURITY AHEAD OF 2011
ELECTION IN AKWA IBOM STATE.

We are Solicitors to the ACTION CONGRESS OF NIGERIA inAkwa Ibom State
hereinafter called “The ACN” a party registered with the INDEPENDENT
NATIONAL ELECTORAL COMMISSION, INEC.

Our instructions are that the Peoples Democratic Party (hereinafter called,
“the PDP”) led government of GovernorGodswill Akpabio in AKWA IBOM STATE
has turned mere political campaigns into a harvest of bloodshed.

Until the flag off of the ACN Campaigns on Wednesday the 9th of March 2011,
there was relative peace in Akwa Ibom State, save for the sporadic
incidents of kidnappings, assassinations and armed robberies which have
been the feature of the State since 2008.

That condition enabled the PDP to launch her campaigns freely and without
molestation in several Local Government Areas of the State.

The PDP and the government suddenly turned violent and accentuated the
worsened state of insecurity in Akwa IbomState, once the ACN joined the
race.

Following the unprecedented crowd that showed support to the ACN at the
flag off, a jittery Governor Godswill Akpabiotelephoned the Director
General of his re-election campaign, the former military Administrator of
the State, Air CommodoreIdongesit Nkanga and chided him for misleading the
PDP and the Governor himself that the ACN had no support in the State.

At the end, they both reasoned that they had lost the forthcoming election
and that the only way to stem off defeat was to kill the ACN Governorship
candidate, Senator John JamesAkpanudoedehe.

This they did, in spite of the unambiguous warning of President Jonathan to
them that he did not want to become President on the blood of Nigerians.

We are instructed further that, so much blood of Akwa Ibompeople have been
spilled by the government in the State already.

This is the satanic plan that must not be trivialized on the altar of proof.

The two conspirators would deny this in public but we are instructed to
inform you that this plan must not be allowed to blossom. It must be nibbed in
the bud.

We are further instructed that unless this is done, anarchy and a bloody
revolution would be inevitable.

Indeed, the Government refused the ACN the use of the UYO township stadium,
the venue of PRESIDENT Jonathan’s campaign less than 48 hours before. Only
the firm intervention of the State Director of the State Security Services
convinced Governor Akpabio to allow the use of the stadium. But in all
other campaigns of the ACN in the Local Government Areas in the State, the
party is denied designated State venues as would be shown hereunder.

So far the party would avoid confrontation and opt for less advertising
venues. The resistance of the ACN in the IbionoIbom Local Government Area
of the State led to violent confrontation which was only resolved by very
responsible policing by the State police command led by a very respectable
police commissioner Mr. Sanni Magaji. The police commissioner has issued
signals to police commands in the State to offer the parties a level
playing field, but this is severely spurned by the government and the
ruling party which continues to deny the ACN designated campaign venues
duly applied for. The government has fouled the political air and simply
will not condone a smooth ACN rally in the Local Government Areas of the
State.

ETIM EKPO LOCAL GOVERNMNET AREA

We are instructed that in Etim Ekpo Local Government Area, the ACN
congregated to open a new secretariat of the party at about 12 noon on the
11th of March 2011 in UTU NSEHE/ABAT boundary both in WARD 1 of the Local
Government Area.

The intention of the party was to hoist the flag of the party and plant
their sign board on the office.

The party’s candidate for the Abak Federal Constituency Mr. UDUAKOBONG OKPO
of ABAT Town was there.

So was the State Security Services officer attached to Etim EkpoLocal
Government Area and other party faithfuls.

As the ceremony kicked off, several youths emerged from the house of Mr.
Emmanuel Enoidem, the Commissioner for Housing and Urban Development in the
government of Governor Godwill Akpabio, a few metres away, with guns, axes,
sticks, matchetes, hammers, knives, bottles and other violent weapons and
ran down to the gathering. Among them was NSIMA IBANGA, the PDP CHAPTER
CHAIRMAN in ETIM EKPO. They began to matchet the ACN supporters, beat up on
them, shoot and hit them with hammer.

Many ran away but some stood their grounds and resisted.

Many are at the point of death now.

Soon arrived soldiers of the Nigerian Army, said to be guarding a SETRACO
construction site nearby.

The soldiers ordered away the ACN supporters claiming they received a phone
call that ACN was hoisting the flag and putting up their sign board on the
commissioner’s house.

When the ACN officers explained to the soldiers that they were
commissioning their office and pointed out the commissioner’s house to the
soldiers, the soldiers asked them to continue their ceremony and stood back
to provide them with security.

At the end of the meeting, everybody including the soldiers left for home.

But at 2 am the following day, men dressed in mobile police uniform and
armed with Ak 47 riffles raided the ACN office. They shot randomly. When
one ESANG UKO, the PRESIDENT OF ABAT Town Youths woke up to find out what
was happening, he saw the following indigenes of UTU NSEHE village:

1.NSIMA IBANGA (PDP WARD 1 CHAIRMAN ) and

2. IMEH IMEH IDUNG among the raiders .

He also saw the following indigenes of ABAT Town:

1.Mr. UWEM OTU

2. UDUAK EMMZASON and

3 OKPONGETE EKURIKPA amongst them.They shot ESSANG UDOFA who pointed his
touch light at them for ESANG UKO to see. The bullet ripped through his
shoulders. He was rushed to hospital that same morning. They then removed
the flag and signboard of the ACN and carried them away.

Our further instruction is that Commissioner ENOIDEM had always maintained
that the ACN should never attempt to hoist its flag or plant a signed board
in that village.

He warned the village head, chief SUNDAY HAM UDOAKA ( alias AKPAN AHAM)
that the day that happened, he would pull down the flag, kill those who did
and burn down the house where it was hoisted.

The PDP and government functionaries enjoy the free rein because even the
authority of the police in the area has been denuded.

We are instructed that the nearest police station is in front of the house
of Rtd DIG Udom Ekpoudom who of course caused it to be established.

Our information is that he is a core loyalist of GovernorGodswill Akpabio and
had instructed that the police should not receive any report from the ACN.

Accordingly, formal report from the ACN could only be “smuggled” into the
police file and never freely.

As at the time of our instructions, commissioner Enoidem has already rushed
to lodge a report on the incident against the ACN, at the said police
station of course.

Unless your hallowed office makes a determined effort to track down the
culprits in this instruction therefore, there is no doubt that the
elections in Akwa Ibom State as would also be noted in the under listed
Local Government Areas would be a full blown war.

IBIONO IBOM LOCAL GOVERNMNET AREA

Our instruction in this Local Government Area are that in the course of the
campaigns, the PDP led by MR. Bassey Albert, the commissioner for Finance,
Akwa Ibom State, visited IKPANYA WARD 11 IBIONO IBOM Local Government Area
and held a meeting with his party faithfuls in a primary school thereat.

The PDP WARD 11 Chairman there, one OKON AKPAFIN informed the commissioner
in his speech on the occasion that the IKPANYA ward 11 always enjoyed a one
party status but that the WARD CHAIRMAN of the ACN MR. OFONIME MARK
formerly of the PDP had brought in the ACN, into the WARD. He then asked
the commissioner to counsel on how best to deal with that situation. The
commissioner in response, instructed that anybody who convened a meeting of
the ACN ,should be stoned to death and that the government would handle the
consequences .

The ACN WARD 11 CHAIRMAN, OFONIME MARK heard this clearly because he lived
just by the school and the loudspeaker used was really blaring ,

He further heard the commissioner add that if he (OfonimeMark) came out on
the day of the election, he should be arrested.

Our information is that the commissioner is already very antagonistic to
the ACN WARD CHAIRMAN for soon after that visit he accused the ACN WARD
CHAIRMAN of sending him a threat message, an accusation which was meant to
lay the foundation for his arrest even early.

It is our instruction that on the 11th of March 2011 when the ACN held its
campaign rally at Ikpa, Ibiono Ibom, in defiance of the government’s
refusal for them to use the venue, the commissioner, commissioned youths
with axes, matchets, bottle and guns to disrupt the rally.

The ACN ward 11 Chairman was stabbed all over with bottle and clubbed on
the head also.

He lives to tell the story only on account of the excellent intervention of
the police leadership earlier alluded to. Many were wounded and are
receiving treatment now in the hospital.

Our further information is that the commissioner is chasing one OMA
JEREMIAH a friend of the WARD 11 Chairman around with the police claiming
he destroyed the PDP campaign office at OKO ITA , the headquarters of the
Local Government Council Area.

That same day and at the same Oko Ita, one ARCHIBONG OKOKON EDET of the ACN
, an indigene of Ifa Atai village inUyo, became marooned from the convoy of
the ACN by some mechanical damage to his motor cycle. He stopped to repair
his cycle.

The PDP youths caught up with him and severely beat up on him.

They seized his motor cycle and phone and went away leaving him for death.
He survives to tell the story also courtesy of the gallantry of the State
police command.

The PDP mob led by Ikpongke Dan an indigene of MbiakpanAtan village in Ward
6 and Savior Uwa of Ikot Ada Idem village in Ward 5 of this Local
Government Area have vandalised the billboard of SEN. John Udoedehe, the
Governorship candidate of the ACN erected same day in that Ward 6.

ITU LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA

Our information is that, PDP elements armed to the teeth prevented the ACN
rally at the Civic Centre in the Local Government Headquarters at Mbak-Atai
, Itu inspite of an earlier application for the venue.

To save lives, the ACN opted for a Church venue to hold their rally.

Our client instructs that this shall not always be so.

ABAK LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA

Instruction from our client in this Local Government Area is that the PDP
has sown Mobile Police uniform and prospects to bring in kitted warriors
from Ika Local Government Area of the State reputed to have fought boundary
wars with the Igbos, to disrupt the ACN rally there.

This is expected to follow government’s refusal of any venue the ACN could
ask for.

Obviously, there shall be several loss of lives in this one.

Our client is afraid that she could be pushed to the wall here and what could
happen can only be imagined.

IKOT EKPENE, ESSIEN UDIM, IKA, ORUK ANAM AND UKANAFUN LOCAL GOVERNMENT
AREAS.

Our instructions in these Local Government Areas are that the PDP led by
Emmanuel Enoidem, the Commissioner for Housing and Urban Renewal, Sunday
Ibanga, the Ikot Ekpene Local Government Area PDP Chapter Chairman,

Nse Ntuen, the Essien Udim Local Government Council Chairman, and Etido
Inyang, Governor Akpabio’s Special Adviser on Technical matters, all of
PDP, have concluded plans to levy war against the ACN.

In a meeting held a few days before this instruction at Ukana, the
Governor’s village at Essien Udim Local Government Area, the parties agreed
to vote over #5billion naira in arms and ammunition to wage war against the
ACN in these Local Government Areas.

Here they do not want the ACN to campaign at all, even in alternative
venues.

Certainly, the Federal Republic of Nigeria must be interested in this.

Should this happen, our client ask, would the April elections still be
considered as elections?

ESIT EKET LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA

We are instructed here that the Council Chairman, one MrVictor Bassey publicly
proclaimed to the delight of his guests, the wife of Governor Akpabio, the
paramout ruler and other dignitaries in a reception, that no other party
would be allowed to campaign in that local government area. This our client
says, is on video. He added that such would be considered a crime and
treated as such.

ORON LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA

The Commissioner for Youth and Sports , one Oyong Asuquohas already warned
off the ACN campaign team.

At the burial of former Chairman of the PDP in Akwa IbomState, late Tony
Emenyi a few month’s ago, he successfully turned back the luxurious buses
and other vehicles directed by the former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Obong
Victor Attahto convey mourners to the venue.

They were apprehended, prevented from entering Oron town at the Uyo – Oron road
in Akwa Ibom State by men instructed by Commissioner Asuquo.

They were assaulted, raided, robbed and were forced back.

Commissioner Oyong vows to repeat this on the day the ACN campaigns at Oron.

CONCLUSION

Our client’s final instruction is that the activities of the PDP and her
government in Akwa Ibom State are clearly calculated to overawe the State.
They are lawless, reckless, and bloodthirsty.They have no love for the
people of Akwa Ibom and would do anything to keep power. Nothing, not even
life would be so sacred to prevent their cravings..

Surely, no free and fair election can take place under this atmosphere.

Our client is aware that under the Electoral Act, the INEC has powers to
void elections in violent areas.

However, this will be grossly unfair to parties who are victims of violence
particularly in areas they are popular.

We are therefore under instructions to ask that you apprehend all violent
elements in government and place them under security watch.

The ACN must not be allowed to be pushed to the wall and tempted to react
in kind.

Moreover, the party may not be able to rein in supporters who could no
longer tolerate the excesses of the PDP and her government.

Our final instructions are that we ask and we do hereby ask that all venues
the ACN ask to use for campaigns be completely secured for use of the
party, by all the security agencies in Nigeria, particularly where the PDP
herself had used the venues, and that adequate security be provided for all
parties equally and fairly in the campaigns.

It is certainly not fair to assign the governor and his aides a platoon of
security while assigning light security to our client’s supporters and
encouraging them to resort to their own devices.

Our client sends you her warmest regards.

Apostle Helen Ukpabio Cancels Visit To US, Cites Threat to Life.

22 Apr

Mrs Ukpabio

The President and founder of theLibertyGospelFoundationChurch, Lady Apostle Helen Ukpabio says she has indefinitely cancelled her scheduled visits to theUSAwhich where billed for March and May this year.

Speaking through her attorney, Victor Ukutt, Esq., the Pentecostal Pastor and Nollywood actress, who has her church branches spread all over Africa, said her decision to cancel her trip was based on the series of death threat she received from organisations like Stepping Stones Nigeria a based in the United Kingdom which claimed to work as a charity to protect witch children in Nigeria.

“The woman of God has received written threat to life by several organisations and persons on behalf of Stepping Stones Nigeria. Such threats are very serious that they even say as soon as she sets foot on the US soil she will be killed; so we cannot take such when people determine to be violent because of one’s belief.” Mr Ukutt said.

In a chat with a US media conglomerate, Allvoice, Ukutt revealed that Gary Foxcroft has gone ahead and organised an online donation to enable his group to confront her if she arrives theUnited States of America.

“You see Gary Foxcroft is a criminal and opportunist. He avails himself of any slightest opportunity he sees to con people and make money out of them. Just on hearing that this woman of God will visit US he capitalised on that and raised more than £50,000 to enrich himself and his few online fraudsters. The fund rising is going on right now as I’m talking to you.”

The Nigerian lawyer questioned what such money will be used for now that Mrs Ukpabio has cancelled herUStrip, if not for personal use.

“What is he going to used the money to do now that she has indefinitely put off the visit; is it not to line his pocket or smile to the bank as he used the child witch story to become an overnight millionaire?”Ukutt asked rhetorically.

He further disclosed that Mrs Ukpabio was billed to organise a religious program inNew Yorkand Huston in March and May this year, respectively. But due given flurry of hostility created by the groups, she has been advised to stay put. And the group has written petition letter to US Department of Immigration and Naturalisation, US Embassy inNigeriaand other department to stop Mrs Ukpabio from entering theUS
