- A former governorship aspirant, Jumoke Anifowose, has made serious allegations against some APC chieftains
- However, Anifowose did not name the party members she accused of plotting to harm her
- The politician is at odds with members of the APC over a court case
Jumoke Anifowose, a former governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged that chieftains of the party are planning to kill her.
The politician told journalists in Ondo state on Thursday, January 28, that she has been receiving death threats from some chieftains of the party for refusing to drop her legal action against Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, The Tribune reported.
“They are after my life, I have been warned to stay away from the state, for now, they are planning to assassinate me, they know if I die the case would die.''
Anifowose stated that APC leaders have been pleading with her to drop the case. She stated that her refusal to do so has angered the chieftains of the party.
''They have come to beg me, it was when I refused that they began the plan to get rid of me. But their plans have been exposed to me, I know all of them.''
According to Vanguard, the politician vowed to pursue her case against the governor to a logical conclusion.
The former governorship aspirant faulted her reported suspension from the APC for alleged anti-party activities.
Anifowose is challenging the validity of Rotimi Akeredolu’s emergence as the governorship candidate of the APC in the Ondo guber poll.
She lost the case at the Federal High Court in Abuja court but is threatening to appeal the judgment.
In another report, the crisis rocking the Imo chapter of the APC has taken another twist as the state government verbally attacked Senator Rochas Okorocha for alleging that Governor Hope Uzodinma ordered the invasion of his daughter's warehouse.
This Day reported that the state government described Okorocha as a shameless and irredeemable politician.
Okorocha, who was the former governor of the state, had said Uzodinma was overwhelmed with governance and asked the governor to learn a few lessons in administering a state like Imo.
