The Department of State Services on Monday said it had begun investigation into a petition sent to it by the Anambra State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Ken Emeakayi, alleging that the state Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, had threatened to kill him.
Emeakayi had in a petition to the police and DSS dated March 7 alleged that Obiano was after his life for calling for his impeachment over constitutional breaches.
He said in the petition, “The climax was when in a telephone conversation on Thursday, February 23, 2017, the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, directly by himself, threatened to kill me.
The Director of the DSS, Anambra State Command, Mr. Yusuf Isyaku, while receiving Emeakayi in his office in Awka, Anambra State on Monday, said, “What I can tell you is that we are investigating the matter. We’ve gone far on it. That’s all I can tell you for now.”
Emeakayi had also visited the police to follow up the petition he sent to the command. The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Sam Okaula, was not on his desk to address the PDP chairman and his entourage, a situation Emeakayi described as a ploy to kill his petition.
