Benue South Rerun: David Mark Petitions IGP APC’s Onjeh, Ogenyi plot to assassinate Mark

Plots by the All Progressive Congress (APC)  chieftains in Benue state to assassinate former President of the Senate  Senator David Mark ahead of the Saturday  February 20, 2016, rerun election  for Benue South has been uncovered.

The  APC candidate for the election Daniel Onjeh through his campaign Director,  Okpokwu Ogenyi in connivance with the state Deputy Governor Benson Abounu are alleged to have hired the services of cultists to unleash terror in Benue South and in the process target Senator Mark for elimination.

Credible sources listed the cultists  hired for the assassination to include the notorious supreme Vikings squad from Jos, Plateau state as well as the dreaded Black Axe in Makurdi  Benue state .

Already, Senator Mark has alerted the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Solomon Arase of the plot by the APC stalwarts in Benue to assassinate him.

In a petition  to the IGP signed by his counsel Mr. Ken Ikonne , it was alleged that one Okpokwu Ogenyi is the arrow head of the plot.

In the petition, Ikonne told the IGP that ” it is obvious that Ogenyi knows more about the assassination plot than he has revealed.

” Our client has therefore instructed us to petition you( IGP)  to as a matter of urgency  apprehend and interrogate Ogenyi to throw more light on the details of this grave assassination plot before  he  and his associates carry out the dastardly plot.”

Only yesterday , Police said to be attached to the State Deputy Governor Benson Abounu fired several gun shots into the family house of Senator Mark in Otukpo.

No reason was given for the unprovoked attack and no arrest has been made.

 A couple of weeks ago, Benue  State chairman of the APC Mr. Abbah Yaro  was quoted as saying “if Senator Mark wants, let him win the election in seven out of the nine local government areas  but no returning officer born of a woman will dare declare him.”

His  PDP counterpart Dr. Emmanuel Agbo had petitioned the Nigeria Police Command over the unhealthy political activities of APC in Benue state  ahead of the election and asked the authorities to prevail on them to allow peace reign.
