Ex Senate President David Mark has written a petition to Police IG Solomon Arase, saying his life is in danger.
According to him, 3 top APC chiefs have hired deadly cult groups to assassinate him.
The former senate president, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Paul Mumeh, explained that “credible sources listed the cultists hired for the assassination to include the notorious supreme Vikings Squad from Jos, Plateau State and the dreaded Black Axe in Makurdi Benue State.”
He alleged in the petition signed by his counsel Mr. Ken Ikonne, that one (Okpokwu Ogenyi) is the arrow head of the plot.
“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 (Sunday), 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.”
