My life now seriously threatened by officials of Rivers Govt – Sobomabo Jackrich cries out

Hon. Sobomabo Jackrich

High Chief  Sobomabo Jackrich Founder, Kengema Unity Forum and Network for the Defense of Democratic and Good Governance president, has called on the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, DG Department of State Services – DSS, IG of Police, DG National Intelligence Agency NIA, the Director of Military Intelligence DMI, Diplomatic Community and the general Public etc, of alleged sponsored plots by some highly placed individuals in the Rivers State Government and a member of the House of Representatives to assassinate him at all cost any moment from now in the buildup to the 2023 political era. 

In a statement Jackrich personally signed on March 16 in Port Harcourt and made available to GbaramatuVoice, he said that the plot by these highly placed individuals particularly from Akuku Toru and Degema axis of the state, was revealed to him by high profile intelligence and undoubtable sources, which has confirmed what he had been observing based on the advances made against him by the persons attempting variously to compromise his personal security. 

According to him, “Part of the plan is to frame me up and deploy some security officials to my house under the guise of a search and then open fire on me, then turn to allege that I engaged the officials in a gun battle.

“These individuals, amongst whom is a top appointee of the Rivers State government from Akuku Toru, who had passed directives to all LGA Chairmen in Rivers State to perfect these plots should I bring my non-violence Outreach to their areas through the Kengema Unity Forum (KUF) and Network for the Defense of Democratic and Good Governance (NDDGG), which I respectively founded. 

“Part of the plot is to cause an uprising in the course of my non-violence outreach in various communities by planting hoodlums in our midst to justify my killing as a cover for their mission. 

“They also plot to tactically influence the withdrawal of my security detail in order to make me vulnerable for attack. 

“May I state that this may not be undoubtedly unconnected to my stance against bad governance and demand for accountable leadership in the state. Because I have succeeded in stripping these politicians off their hold on our youths for violence and supportively ensured their meaningful and resourceful engagements.

“These classes of politicians find it uncomfortable because I do not do their bidding to destroy the lives of our people as they are known for, and that is my only offense. 

“Let me restate for the records that I am not a criminal, I’m not a gun runner, or of any threat to society, but a best friend of the grassroots. This is what they have taken as offense against me. 

“Thus these powerful individuals in the Rivers State government plan not only to criminalize my group – Kengema Unity Forum and Network for the Defense of Democracy and Good Governance – which is formidable and has consistently played strategic roles in the politics of Rivers state, but they have concluded plans to blacklist and discredit the group because they are now seen as a threat to their unbridled 2023 ambitions. 

“I therefore call on the President and Commander in Chief of the Federal Republic Muhammadu Buhari and all Security Chiefs and Agencies to be aware of these plots against me, and do the needful and bring these persons and their co-travelers to justice as my life is now seriously threatened by them and they should be held responsible accordingly should anything happen to me.
