SENATOR representing Delta Central Senatorial district, Chief Ovie Omo-Agege has refuted claims by Chief O’tega Emerhor that he’s plotting to assassinate him over his political ambition.
Aide to Omo-Agege, Efe Duku, in a reaction obtained by TribuneOnline sequel to a request made, said Omo-Agege could never wish Emerhor, whom he described as his brother, dead.
He averred, in his reaction, he tagged “our initial response,” made available to TribuneOnline as a text message, that the petition, if truly in custody of the IGP, should be thoroughly investigated.
“This is our initial response: We are yet to see the petition you mentioned. But we can tell you if true at all that Olorogun Otega Emerhor actually wrote such a petition, we shall insist that any allegations made in it should be thoroughly investigated because Senator Ovie Omo-Agege never wishes his brother or anyone else dead,” Duku enthused.
He accused the petitioner of biting more than he can chew and attempting to destroy Urhobo ethnic nationality with his alleged malicious petition.
“We think Emerhor is going just too far but we will never allow him to destroy Urhobo with his politics of extreme bitterness, malice, envy and wickedness.
“Senator Omo-Agege prays that Olorogun Emerhor lives to good ripe old age according to God’s purpose.
“We need him alive to witness his coming political defeat. He should stop appealing to pity.
“Our people hate what he is doing, but somehow he seems not to know or care.
“His malicious petition will receive a proper response from us when we get it,” he added while calling on the IGP to investigate the allegation.
Emerhor had, as earlier reported by TribuneOnline, alleged that Omo-Agege has concluded plans to eliminate him over his quest to prevent him from representing Delta Central Senatorial district as candidate in the coming APC primaries.
Emerhor had picked the APC Senatorial form to contend with Omo-Agege, the incumbent Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial district, in the coming primaries.
The two belong to different factions of the party in Delta State who have been battling to take over the structure of the party.
