It would be recalled that Eta, the APC Vice National Chairman (South-South), was appointed by APC’s National Working Committee (NWC) to act on behalf of Abiola Ajimobi, who is currently down by illness.
Eta disclosed this development to newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday, adding that political thugs were entering the Federal Capital Territory from Port Harcourt to set the APC national secretariat on fire.
“We got information that they are going to send thugs from Port Harcourt. They are coming here to burn the Secretariat and make it look like the National Working Committee instigate a fire incident so that the Secretariat will be burnt down and then, they will give the impression that it is the NWC that is burning down the Secretariat because they don’t want Victor Giadom to come in,” Eta said.
“They have two intentions, that is number one. Number two is that they are going to make an attempt on my life. I just thought that I should let the press know this,” he added.
Eta said he will report the matter to the police for investigation.
It would be recalled that earlier on Wednesday, the former Deputy National Secretary of APC, Victor Giadom, was invited for a meeting of the National Executive Council of the party, for tomorrow (Thursday).
According to the Rivers-born politician, President Muhammadu Buhari was aware of the visual NEC meeting.
Reacting, Eta stated Giadom is no longer a member of the ruling party, noting that Giadom’s NEC meeting is unconstitutional.
