SPEAKERSHIP: CUPP moves against Gbajabiamila, approaches Abuja Court

Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) first national publicity secretary, Imo Ugochinyere, has cried out over alleged plots by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) to arrest him.

Ugochinyere, who made this claim at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, explained that the reason warranting the alleged plot to arrest him was because of his opposition to  President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration

He also said that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) was aware and uncomfortable that 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.

“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,” Ugochinyere said.

According to the CUPP spokesman, a review of the forms in his possession revealed that the affected ministers did not make full disclosure in their assets.

He added that Buhari’s administration wants to do everything to ensure such documents are not published as it was the same reason cited to suspend the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.
