    Abia Governor vows to activate all relevant laws to protect himself, family against attacks by opponents

    Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has vowed to use all legal means to protect his person, family and office from attacks by perceived opponents.

    The decision was a reaction to multitude of attacks from opposition elements in the state against his person and office

    This was contained in a statement issued by Ikpeazu’s Chief Press Secretary, Onyebuchi Ememanka in Umuahia on saturday

    Part of the statement reads ” the attention of the Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has been drawn to the recent incidence of unwarranted attacks on both his person, his family and indeed, the office of the Governor of Abia State by certain persons in the State”. 

    “In some instances, some of these persons have openly threatened to attack the Governor and members of his family physically.

    “It is on record that since his assumption of office in May 2015, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has exhibited unparalleled tolerance and accommodation in the discharge of his duties as Governor.

    “He has consistently ignored all those whose stock in trade have been to practically poke their fingers on his face for no just cause. 

    “In the last 7 years and some months of his Governorship, there have been little or no negative incidents between the office of the Governor and individuals, except where there were been manifest attempts to undermine his person and office.”

    The statement further noted that “it appears that this disposition of the Governor has been misconstrued by some persons who now, at the slightest reason or even for no justifiable reason whatsoever , embark on a public display of unprecedented insults, abuses and threats to the life of the Governor and members of his family”.

    ” While the governor wishes to make it abundantly clear that under no circumstances would he sit idly and allow this situation to continue” stressing that no reasonable citizen will watch his personal security come under threat of imminent danger and do nothing about it, let alone, an elected Governor of a State.

    “In specific terms, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu wishes to make it categorically clear that he shall pursue his legal rights against Hon. Ginger Onwusibe to a logical conclusion in Courts of Law”, the statement declared.
