A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Daniel Bwala, has raised an alarm suggesting that some top people at the Presidential Villa in Abuja were planning to arrest him on trumped-up allegations.
Bwala, was a former lawmaker of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, before he joined the PDP at the build-up of the 2023 general elections.
The allegation was contained in a post he made on his social media platform X on Monday.
Bwala alleged that some key people around the seat of power were planning to use the security agencies to arrest him in order to rubbish and silence him because he was making the government uncomfortable.
He wrote, “Last night I got credible intelligence that some key people around the seat of power (Presidential Aso Villa) of this government are planning to use the security agencies to arrest me and take me into custody on trumped-up allegations in order to rubbish me and silence me.
“That I am making them and the government uncomfortable. Let the world know today that I have always known that from my stands on the same faith ticket which led to my leaving APC, and consequent posture as a political opposition, it might irk the deep state and come with persecution for what I believe in and stand for.
“If anything happens to me, let the world know today of their evil plans.”
