TMG Chair Petitions Police IG On Threat To Life
The Chairman of the Transition Monitoring Group (TMG), Ibrahim M. Zikirulahi has written a petitioned to the acting Inspector General of police Mr. Solomon Arase over the activities of some unknown persons who have been using anonymous phone calls to mount a constant siege of death threats his life.
The death threats, according to the TMG chairman, have now metamorphosed into a constant trailing of movement by elements, whom he suspect are hatching a sinister and evil plot to do something untoward to him and members of his family.
In the petition letter to the IGP dated May 15, 2015, Zikirulahi stated that, “One key aspect of our findings on the March 28 Presidential election was that the turn out figures in the South-south States of Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Delta and Bayelsa were inflated by at least 10.8 per cent.
We had recommended in our verification statement that an investigation be launched into how the inflation of the turnout figures in these South-south states was done. “Since our well-publicised verification, I have been inundated by the aforementioned threats, causing me and my family a lot of psychological trauma.
Between the day TMG verified the results of the Presidential elections and now, I have received not less than 20 threats via phone calls from hidden numbers.”
He therefore called on the IG to use his office to save his life from the hands of the suspects, especially after three strange men visited his Kano home on May 14, in ash colour Honda vehicle with Abuja registration number GLD 64 MM, asking of his whereabouts.
“I however will not lie low and allow the adversaries of truth to silence me. It is in this regard that I respectfully demand that you use your good office to order an immediate investigation into the activities of this unknown group that has been after me,” he said.
