What Happened On 26th December Was Pure Assassination Attempt On My Life - Emegha Revealed

The Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Ebonyi State and Special Security. Consultant to the state government, Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha yesterday said he did not provoke shootings in Ekoli Edda, Afikpo South local government area of the state in which  political thugs killed his younger brother and burnt his houses and vehicle.

A Policeman and a youth leader were also killed  when the thugs struck.

Emegha described as wicked, falsehood and mischievous, the reports in some sections of the media that he was blowing siren and shooting sporadically which provoked the killings.

He wondered why he was linked to the shootings in the community which started in Ameke village in the area where he went to inspect a town hall he was building for the people after receiving  traditional rulers and elders of the community who paid him a visit to congratulate him on the award given to him by Governor Dave Umahi.

He opined that the traditional rulers have absolved him of the shootings  before Governor Umahi and challenged journalists to always cross check their information before dishing them out to the public and expressed dismay over the reports.

He expressed confidence in the security agencies in the state who he said will unravel the truth and bring perpetrators of the mayhem to book.

Emegha commended Governor Dave Umahi for his quick intervention  into the dastard act and peaceful leadership  which he said prevented it from escalation.

" What people don't know is that I was with traditional rulers who came to congratulate me on the recent award His Excellency the Governor.

After seeing the elders, I moved to where I a building a town hall for the people of my village.While I was there inspecting the building, I started hearing gunshots. 

"As a peaceful person and a man under grace, I ordered  security personnel that were me not to respond to the shootings because it will lead to many things  which I will not like and they obeyed me and we left the community immediately.

"At what point did I shoot and blow  any siren?", he said.

Any eyewitness who didn't want his name in print said a bullet from the thugs would have killed him if not God's intervention.

"What happened in Ameke on 26th December, 2022 was a clear assassination attempt on myself and the state APC Chairman" ENDS
