The governorship tussle in Abia state has assumed a new dimension, as rumours of death threats have started making the rounds.
Premium Times reports that Uche Ogah’s aide, Peter Kalu revealed that his boss has gone into hiding for his safety.
Kalu also added that Ogah has been receiving death threats from different quarters.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) issued a certificate of return » to Ogah on Thursday, June 30, 2016.
The electoral body’s action was based on an Abuja High court ruling ordering the Abia Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu to vacate office.
Ikpeazu has since asked residents of Abia to be calm, adding that he has gotten an injunction to stop any judicial officer in Nigeria from swearing in Ogah.
Reports say the Abia Chief Judge,
Theresa Uzoukwu is also hiding somewhere in the state.
