Calls On Security Agencies To Protect His Life, Family Members
Ahead of the People’s Democratic Party,PDP primary elections, reports are emerging that desperate politicians are resorting to threat to life as a means of forcing unyielding aspirants to step down.
This was gathered as the leading aspirant for the Warri South West Constituency seat, Delta State House of Assembly, Comrade Sheriff Mulade raised an alarm over threat to his life and family members. He disclosed this while addressing Journalists in Warri and vowed never to step down for anybody or to serve any leader’s selfish interest.
Reaffirming his position to legitimately contest the PDP primaries, Sheriff Mulade said “It is pertinent to inform the general public particularly the Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris and security agencies to do everything within the ambit of the law to protect my life and the lives of my family members. We don’t need politics of intimidation, harassment and oppression”.
The aspirant noted that, since some highly placed Delta State political office holders in the PDP, visited him at home and asked him to step down for their planned and preferred aspirant, he has been getting several calls with hidden numbers from anonymous callers, and equally noting that his movements are under surveillance with threatening calls to kill or kidnap him and his family members before the primary election.
The caller who acknowledged Sheriff Mulade’s popular candidature said Sheriff Mulade’s wide acceptance is threatening their aspirant as the PDP primary election draws near in Warri South-West Constituency.
Sheriff Mulade said, “I have been receiving all sorts of threats stating that their bosses came to speak with me so as to step down and I am proving stubborn, if I want to be alive and experience the primary election, they advise and warn me to immediately step down now to save my life before the primary election, if not they will make life miserable for me and my family, that if I like I should inform anybody they will go after my family physically and spiritually.”
