A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has called on the federal government and security agencies to investigate the alleged assassination attempt on the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
He said the security agencies should also unravel the perpetrators of the evil act and their sponsorship accordingly.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Port Harcourt yesterday, Eze warned against any untoward act against Atiku and the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi and President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The APC chieftain said the attack on the PDP presidential candidate signalled a palpable gloom of apprehension that may have been schemed by some undemocratic forces and class to capture the entire civil society in a bid to once more usurp democracy and stifle the desire of the majority in the pursuit of a selfish, private vendetta.
He expressed concern over the insecurity that has continued to permeate the country, describing the situation as heart-wrenching and grossly discomforting, not minding billions of naira alleged to have been spent over this nation’s security challenges.
Eze said: “Insecurity in Nigeria has successfully climaxed to a level where farmers can no longer go to their farms, and people can no longer travel safely without the care the fear of attacks, thereby rubbishing the federal government declaration of emergency on food security as a mere talk.
“The country seems to be retrogressing to the pre-modern age where life was brutish, nasty and short.
“Security must be beefed up around Atiku as the ‘Waziri Adamawa’ is not an ordinary fellow but a political staunch and notable heavyweight who still has so much to offer the country.”
