The immediate past publicity Secretary of Ebonyi State All Progressives Congress, APC, Nwoba Chika Nwoba, has accused younger brother to Ebonyi Governor, Chief Austin Umahi who was former vice chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in South East of planning to kill him.
Nwoba said it all started some months back when Umahi’s younger brother invited him to his house through a surrogate and said he should leave APC for the PDP.
According to Nwoba, “That the state government of his elder brother envied my publicity potentials and would like to be part of the system. We were five in number in his Abakaliki home that day. Myself, the surrogate, Chief Austin Umahi, Silas Onu and Enekwachi Akpa. These persons are the governor’s hitmen. Whatever decision they take binds on the governor.”
He further revealed how he was given huge amount of money and a car for him to dump APC to PDP back then.
The post on his Facebook page reads in full,
Some months back, younger brother to Ebonyi Governor, Chief Austin Umahi who was former vice chairman of the PDP in South East invited me to his house through a surrogate. He said that I should leave APC for the PDP. That the state government of his elder brother envied my publicity potentials and would like to be part of the system. We were five in number in his Abakaliki home that day. Myself, the surrogate, Chief Austin Umahi, Silas Onu and Enekwachi Akpa. These persons are the governor’s hitmen. Whatever decision they take binds on the governor.
They asked what my price was. I stuttered. I wasn’t at home with their request because, I had long ago made up my mind not to work with the governor, not even as a commissioner. I knew that if I danced against their request bluntly I could be killed there and nobody would be aware of what happened. I told them that they should give me N10million once. They said that it was much. They sought to be paying me on monthly basis. I rejected it. I told them that I hated anything called salary-reaaon I wouldn’t be going into civil service.
They rescheduled the meeting and told me to think about it.
They gave me N100,000. I shared it 50-50 with the guy.
A week later, we assembled. I agreed with them that I would be joining the PDP in due course. They handed me one dead sienna bus and N50,000. I wanted to reject it but, if I did they could act funny on me. They told not to tell it to any human being on earth as they, too, were going to be secretive about it. I concurred. I kept it to myself for so many months now. I didn’t reveal it to anyone living on earth.
When we drove outside, I told the guy that I was not going to drive the car. I told him that he should sell it immediately and give me anything he wanted to give me so I could use it for charity. He sold it and gave me my own share. I went to Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki and paid bills for people. I went to Awka and did the same thing. I didn’t put the money in my personal project because, I knew I was not going to work with them.
A week later, Austin dialled my phone and complained that I was still criticising the government when I just received a gift from them. I replied that I had heard him. In keeping to the promise, I joined PDP last week. Austin dialled in and said that I should return the fucking sienna. I laughed at him. He said that they would make Nigeria inhabitable for me. He dialled again last night threatening me with police and all other things he threatened me with. I replied him that he should not approach me with such manner of stupidity or he faced shame. We quarrelled and quarrelled.
He has threatened to exterminate me. He has threatened to use the police against me.
They have concocted petition alleging that I stole the dead sienna bus. They have made an arrangement to assassinate me. To either use police and jail me or shoot me dead. He insists that I should return the stinking sienna. I don’t even know who bought it.
I didn’t solicit gift from them. They have been robbing Ebonyi people’s financial coffers and being intimidating our people for no just reason; the little they offered me they now want to retrieve and even kill me. I want to assure them that they will see war henceforth. I will tell Ebonyi people what they are yet to know about the Umahi administration and other sinister plans they have for our people. If they fail to leave me alone, and even apologise to me with N2million for insulting me, I will turn on a television set for them and they’ll be viewing themselves and nothing will happen.
They should leave me alone. I have fulfilled the agreement I had with them by joining the PDP. Austin Umahi and Silas Onu should leave me alone! They are planning to kill me. I am aware of their plans and the characters they want to use and execute it. I want to tell them that they might be preparing to kill themselves, not me. I didn’t do them aby wrong. Austin asked me why I joined PDP without telling him. I replied him: “As my father that you are or my boyfriend?” You better respect yourself now or I shatter your already sable image. He threatened brimstone, but he’s just a fingerling. A toy children use to play in the sand. This is the same man claiming to still be in PDP. He asked why I should be leaving the APC when they have just joined us. I asked him what our agreement was. Our agreement was that I should defect to PDP, and that I have done and it’s irreversible!
I appeal to Gov. Umahi to warn his brother and Silas Onu if he doesn’t want me to clamp down on his government. I have what it takes to do so. He should give me N2million as a placatory gift and call his brother to order. It’s a must that they give me the money and their time has begun to count. After one week, it’ll be three million naira.
Ebonyi people, I didn’t steal any car. I am not a thief. I have a future to protect. Umahi with his people has dealt us a big blow and it’s time we remind them that they are not the only family in Ebonyi State. Police should not allow themselves used this time. They should not buy into the propaganda that I stole or defrauded the first family. They gave me a gift. I sold it and used the proceed to assist the needy. Only God knows that I never spent the money realized from the sale of the stupid sienna on myself.
