Mrs Margaret Alamieyeseigha has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of killing her husband, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.

Alamieyeseigha, a former Bayelsa State Governor, died on October 10, 2015, at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital in Rivers State.

Mrs Alamieyeseigha made her comments on Monday, October 24,  2016 while speaking to journalists in commemoration of the first anniversary of her husband’s death.

“I can categorically say today that it was the PDP that arrested my husband, seized all his properties and humiliated him to the point of his death. It is PDP that killed my husband and not the APC. It was PDP that arrested my husband, it was PDP that humiliated my husband and killed him. At the end they seized everything that belonged to him,” she said according to Leadership.

“It was the PDP that tormented my husband and he died as a result of the humiliation he suffered in the hands of the PDP. As far as am concerned, the humiliated me and took everything away from us.

“When my husband took over the mantle of leadership, he saw how his people were suffering. As an intelligent man, he saw the need to fight for resource control as the way out for his people.

“But at the end it is the same people that he fought for that betrayed him. They sold him out to the PDP that eventually killed him. I want to advise the Ijaw people to stop betraying their leaders, so that they can move forward,” she added.
