Atiku raises alarm over threat to life, family members

Presidential aspirant and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has complained of threat to his life and those of his family members.

Atiku made the complaint in a petition to President Muhammadu Buhari, dated September 7, 2018,

He linked the alleged threat to his decision to contest the 2019 presidential election on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The petition was entitled “Petition Over Criminal Intimidation And Threat To My Life, That Of Members Of My Family, And Cyber Stalking Using Mobile Phone Number 08148228704”.

Atiku alleged in the petition that his wife and daughters had received separate text messages from a mobile line, demanding that he (Atiku) drops his ambition, or else they would be raped and killed.

The petition reads in part, “I present my highest compliments to the president and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and have the honour to request your excellency’s kind review/investigation and urgent consideration of extra protection for my family and I against some criminal intimidation and threat to my life, that of my family, and the cyber stalking against my family and I, using telephone mobile number +2348148228704.”

“We will blow your plane off the sky and we will poison you and your family. You are going to see what we will do with your family. We know where and where your children travel to.

“We control the aviation towers in Nigeria and South Africa. We are in government and Buhari will win again. Your party members will never select you and if they do, we will assassinat (sic) you. We will kill you by blowing up your plane”, the threat message further stated.
