The Department of State Services (DSS) in Anambra state has commenced investigation into the alleged  threat to life of Prince Ken Emeakayi,  State Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), by Gov. Willie Obiano.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Emeakayi had alleged that the governor  threatened him for calling for his impeachment over constitutional breaches.

Emeakayi who visited the state  headquarters of the police and DSS  in Awka on Monday, told newsmen that the purpose was to enquire if his petition on the matter was  received and action being taken.

Mr Yusuf Isyaku, Director of DSS, while receiving Emeakayi in his office, assured him that the agency was investigating the allegation.

“I have respect for you, you would have come to my office, without coming with these people here today over the matter,’’ he said.

Emeakayi   in a letter dated March 7, said the governor personally threatened to kill him in a telephone discussion.

“The climax was when in a telephone conversation on Feb. 23, the governor of Anambra, Chief Willie Obiano, directly by himself, threatened to kill me.

“In a telephone conversation at about 8.pm on Feb. 23, the governor of Anambra State, His Excellency Chief Willie Obiano, personally, and by himself, threatened to kill me if I fail to stop questioning the unlawful activities of his administration," he said.

He said that they should also investigate the threat and provide him with security.

Reacting, the Senior Special Adviser to the governor on strategic communication and legislative matters, Mr  Oliver Okpala, said the allegations had no basis and were neither here nor there.
