Imo Ugochinyere, first national spokesperson, Coalition of United Political Parties, has raised the alarm over an alleged plan by men of the Department of State Services, DSS, to arrest him.
Yesterday in Abuja, Ugochinyere said that the plan was to arrest him and keep him away until after elections, because he was in possession of copies of asset declaration forms of some top government officials, including that of the Minister of State, Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu.
He said: “It is important that the world takes note of this. Just about two hours ago, I was informed the DSS had perfected arrangements to arrest me any moment from now.
“It is important that I tell the world the reason behind this move. I have been approached by people in government to reduce the level of my opposition to government, but I cannot betray the trust of the people.
“The problem is that they are aware that the opposition parties are in possession of asset declaration forms of key members of the administration, especially that of the Minister of State, Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu.
“What they want to do is to stop me from releasing those documents.”
