The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abia state has alleged that the Governor elect, Uche Ogah is planning to kidnap judicial officers to swear him in by force.

The Abia PDP spokesman, Chief Don Ubani also told Ogah to stop nursing what he called an unbridled political ambition.

Ubani said “The Peoples’ Democratic Party in Abia State has frowned on the reports making round in the state that a certain desperate politician in the state, whose illegal efforts to seize power from the back door which has been frustrated by decent application of the rule of law, is now directing his evil machination towards kidnapping judicial officers in the state with the hope of intimidating them in order to have access to power that he did not canvass for.

“The party has equally taken cognizance of the inordinately ambitious politician’s plot to kidnap some top functionaries of the party in the state. According to intelligence available to the party, the political desperado is embittered with the state executive of the party for not coming out to support his acts of illegality.

“The party, therefore, cautions the politician that is involved in this sacrilegious and bloody shenanigan to quickly retrace his nefarious steps as the likely consequences of his devious desires and mischievous plots would compound his imagination and would only leave him with regrets that may not be redressed or even corrected in his life time.

“The party wishes to remind him that he who throws stones into a crowded market should not forget that his loved ones could end up being the victims of his action.”

The Governor elect had earlier slammed the Chief Judge of Abia, Theresa Uzoukwu, for not swearing him in, adding that her action was a slap on the rule law.

Justice Uzoukwu had reportedly gone into hiding following pressures mounted on her to swear Ogah in.

The Chief Judge however denied the reports, adding that it is the handwork of politicians who do not have the best interest of Abia at heart.

Uche Ogah was issued a certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on June 30, 2016, following a court ruling ordering Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to vacate office.
