A chieftain of the New Nigeria People’s Party and the 2023 Governorship candidate of the party in Ogun State, Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo, has alerted security agencies to wake up to their responsibilities, in protecting leaders of the party from alleged attacks.

 

Oguntoyinbo who made the call in a statement made available to newsmen on Saturday, urged the Police, Department of State Security and other security agencies to offer protection to the leaders of NNPP following alleged threats to their lives.

 

According to the party Chieftain, there are reports of threats to the lives and properties of some leaders of the party.

 

Describing the party as a peace-loving one, adding that members of the party do not engage and will not engage in violence, Oguntoyinbo called on the security agencies to be on alert and ensure that those planning to attack NNPP chieftains are apprehended before they carry out their wicked mission.

 

He further warned that the lives and properties of members of the party must not be put in danger.

 

“I am calling on the security agencies to please protect our leaders as there are threats to their lives and properties across the country because the party is growing and receiving the support of Nigerians.

 

“What happened at the Court of Appeal where the Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf got a judgement that was tampered with and the fact that our opposition is now seeing clearly that we will get victory at the Supreme Court, have led them to be threatening our lives and our properties.

 

“According to information at the party’s disposal, there are alleged plans by some people under the tag of “unknown gunmen” to attack the National Secretariat of our party while at the same time, some leaders of the party have been marked down for elimination.

 

“The security agencies should come to our aid. I implore our leaders and members across the country but most importantly in Kano State to remain peaceful but be alert and watch out against attack. NNPP is a peace-loving party. We don’t engage and will not engage in violence. But our lives and our properties should not be put in danger,” he said.
