I'm A Victim Of Dirty Politics – Abaribe
Forty-eight hours after his release from the custody of Department of State Services (DSS), Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe (PDP, Abia South) says he was a victim of 'dirty politics'.
It was his first interview with journalists after his release and it held on Thursday in Abuja after his meeting with the leadership of his party.
Abaribe who chairs the Senate Committee on Power, Steel Development and Metallurgy called on Nigerians to get their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) and vote out Buhari in the forthcoming general elections.
He explained that he was accused by the secret police of sponsoring terrorism and advised other Nigerians critical of the government to brace up as they would also be wrongly charged by the Federal Government.
He said: "Where we are today in Nigeria, I can only make one recommendation to Nigerians. And that recommendation is; get your PVCs ready because we have to vote out this government.
“There is no other way we can do it because as you can see, this government is descending into tyranny.
“When I was arrested and I was taken to my house for it to be searched, in the warrant of arrest for the search of my house, what they said was that I was a sponsor of terrorism.
“And I wanted to know subsequently how I would sponsor terrorism and they put there in bracket that I was aiding and sponsoring a proscribed organisation 'IPOB'.
"And so, everybody in Nigeria knows that I signed the bail bond for Nnamdi Kanu of IPOB. And if signing the bail bond means that I'm now a sponsor of IPOB, what it means also is that every Nigerian should be ready.
“For every little thing, they will find a reason to hold you because this government has lost the confidence of the people. And all that they are doing now is nothing but intimidation and trying to make sure that strong voices and voices who are saying that enough is enough, they will like to silence the voices".
He also raised an alarm that the National Assembly is under siege.
"The National Assembly of which I'm a very proud member is now besieged. Yesterday, it was Senate President sponsoring armed robbers, the other day, it was Dino Melaye sponsoring some gun runners, the other day it was Shehu Sani sponsoring murderers.
“Today, my own is sponsoring terrorism. And so everybody should get ready. They will find something that they will hang on your head," he said.
