Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has asked the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris, to investigate the allegations by Mr. Friday Nwosu bothering on threats to his life.
This is contained in a release on Wednesday signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Enyinnaya Appolos.
Ikpeazu frowned at what he described as “penchant for unnecessary and frivolous assertions without proof by politicians to curry attention” and demanded full scale investigation into Nwosu’s allegations.
Nwosu had in a petition to the IGP, accused Ikpeazu, Senator Theodore Orji, Hon Chinedum Orji and one Ekpe Ekpe of planning to assassinate him.
The Governor has however petitioned the Police boss over the matter.
His letter sent through the Abia State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Umeh Kalu (SAN), stated: “the said petition (by Nwosu) contains weighty criminal allegations that are capable of truncating the enduring peace in Abia State, and should be investigated to ascertain the veracity of the allegations.
“The truthfulness or falsity of Nwosu’s grave allegations has its consequences in our criminal legal system, for those who plot to kill another as well as those who offer false information to the police are culpable of known offences.”
