Member Representing Aba South Constituency, Abia State House of Assembly, Hon. Obinna Ichita has alleged that his life is under threat over his demand for the sum of 27 Billion Naira World Bank intervention for flood/erosion control and construction of major roads in Aba south to be accounted for.

He said the state government has received the sum of N27bn through NEWMAP, questioning why Abians are not feeling the impact of the funds.

According to the lawmaker in a statement made available to ABN TV, he has informed relevant security agencies and international organizations over plans to eliminate him under the guise of ‘unknown gunmen’.

He alleged that those who want to kill him are hiding under the guise of security concerns in the state, insisting that no amount of intimidation will stop him from holding government to account.

His message partly reads, “I wish to inform the general public that my life has come under a serious threat. Accordingly, the relevant security and intelligence agencies have been notified.

“The Office of the National Security Adviser and the Headquarters of the AU Committee on Intelligence and Security Services have been furnished with details of this threat.

“The Heads of Diplomatic Missions of European countries in Nigeria, The European Union,The US Embassy and the UK High Commission have all been alerted.

“The need for a thorough investigation by the appropriate superior authorities is accentuated by the plans of some persons/ quarters to hide under the shadow of insecurity in the South East geopolitical zone of Nigeria to perpetuate heinous crimes in the hope that culpability for such crimes would be placed on the doorsteps of “unknown gunmen ”.

“I want to restate that no amount of threat would deplete my belief in accountability in the use of Public funds especially as it relates to the over 27 Billion Naira world bank intervention for flood control and construction of major roads in Aba south through NEWMAP, which money has been paid in full by the World Bank to the State Government.

“Lastly, my duties as a member of the Abia House of Assembly especially as it relates to the Ad hoc committee investigating the allegations / controversies surrounding the 22 Billion Naira Paris Club refund to the State government would continue to be discharged without any fear of intimidation from any quarter.”
