Minority Leader alleges threat to life

By Jimitota Onoyume

PORT HARCOURT— Embattled  Minority Leader, Rivers State House of Assembly, Benibo Anabraba, has raised alarm over  his safety, saying that he has been receiving threat messages on his phone since he assumed office as Minority Leader of the House.

Anabraba, in a text message to Vanguard, yesterday, alleged that some security men stormed his office recently apparently to whisk him away.

“Plain clothes security agents invaded my office in the Assembly Complex seeking my arrest as I have just been informed by  my  aides and colleagues in the Assembly,” he said.

He told Vanguard that the security men who went for his arrest missed him because he was away in Abuja.

It will be recalled that Anabraba was suspended recently by his party, All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state for alleged anti- party activities.

Reacting to the suspension, he said he still remains a member of the party and retains his office as Minority Leader of the party in the House of Assembly.
