Investigator writes Buhari, accuses APC senator of trying to kill him
The private investigator, Victor Uwajeh had accused Senator Andy Uba of forging his WAEC certificate.
Uwajeh said the alleged threat to his life was coming over the case he instituted against the Senator in court claiming for his professional fees.
Uwajeh, in a statement on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, said he had received several death threats from person's claiming to be "agents of Senator Andy Uba."
Uwajeh, a United Kingdom-based private investigator had filed a suit before a High Court in Abuja, through his lawyer, Anthony Agbonlahor, accusing Uba of non-payment of his professional fees for services rendered by him pursuant to his two power of attorneys dated December 28, 2012 and January 5, 2013.
Also in the suit, Uwajeh also accused Uba of being an impostor in relation to his academic credentials.
While lamenting cases of threats he had received in revent time, Uwajeh said: "I want to bring to the attention of President Mohammed Buhari and the international community of several attempts to assassinate and poison me by Senator Emmanuel Nnamdi Uba a.k.a Andy Uba.
"This is sequel to the case I instituted in court claiming for my professional fees from him. In the court processes, fake WAEC certificates of Emmanuel Nnamdi Uba's were tendered as part of exhibits in court. Being public documents the media and NGO's have used them in several petitions calling for his recall from the Senate and also for his arrest prosecution.
"Prior to this, Andy Uba had written a petition against me to the Inspector General of Police alleging blackmail and published my phone numbers in several news media and online. Since then I have received several death threats from person's claiming to be agents of Senator Andy Uba.
"I also received text messages and a letter written with a red pen and cult like images were dropped at my gate by a taxi driver. I wrote several petitions to the Inspector General of Police who has refused to act.
"The IGP and AGF Malami has joined with Andy uba to bring frivolous charges against me in a bid to scuttle the investigation against Andy uba for certificate forgery.
"I am therefore afraid of my life. Andy Uba and IGP Ibrahim Idris should be held responsible should any harm befall me or any member of my family.”
But, Senator Uba's media office described Uwajeh's claim as "cheap blackmail".
"We advise Victor Uwajeh to immediately turn himself in to the Security agents and face his pending trial in the court of law rather than making false allegations to evade the long arm of the law.
"Rehashing the stale and fake news of certificate forgery and blackmail attempt to no avail will not bring about a quick dispensation of justice," his media office said in a statement made available to .
