Ex-militant leader petitions IGP…alleges threat to life


ABUJA-Ex-militant leader, Bibopiri Ajube, a.k.a General Shoot-at-Sight, is at daggers drawn with an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Danjuma Garba, for allegedly withdrawing four mobile policemen attached to him over his failure to sustain a N200,000 monthly welfare package.

Consequently, he has said his life was in danger, and had, therefore, urged the National Security Adviser, NSA, General Owoye Azazi, and Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Hafiz Ringim, to take urgent steps to ensure adequate protection for him to avert a scenario such as the cold-blooded murder of a repentant militant leader, the late Soboma George, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Speaking in Abuja yesterday after submitting a petition to the IGP, Ajube, who hails from Arogbo-Ijaw kingdom in Ondo State, alleged that his police security details given to him on the orders of the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, after the Federal Government’s offer of amnesty to militants in the Niger Delta, were recently withdrawn for inexplicable reasons on the orders of the Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of operations at the state police command, Mr. Danjuma Garba, who, he alleged, was playing out a plot to exterminate him.
