The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the last election in Abia State, Dr Alex Otti, has alleged that his life is in danger, claiming that unknown gunmen tried assassinate him.
Speaking with journalists at his campaign office in Umuahia, Otti said the incident happened in the early hours of Friday in a private guest house in the Maitama area of Abuja.
Otti said that he left the guest house on Thursday, shortly before the gunmen invaded the place and killed one of the policemen on duty in the premises.
He sad, “In the early hours of this morning (Friday) I got information that a yet-to-be identified people invaded my guest house in Abuja through the back fence, cut the wire mesh and scaled through the fence and made through to where I stay.
“One of the policemen that guard the place was shot dead and the body has been deposited in the mortuary, if I had spent the day there maybe it would have been a different story now.”
He said that the incident happened at 2am yesterday, adding that it could have been a different story if he had spent the night at the guest house.
Otti, who said he was not suspecting anyone or group, added that the police have stepped into the matter, even as investigation has commenced.
The APGA flag bearer in the last election said, “There have been pockets of attempts on my life, but not to this magnitude since the election was concluded and the matter taken to the tribunal.”
