The former Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, Dr. Temitope Aluko, has alleged that over the last 96 hours, there have been not less than two attempts by top politicians to assassinate him.
Aluko, who revealed this to newsmen on Wednesday night, further alleged that he has uncovered plots to set his houses in Ekiti ablaze.
According to him, he made the revelation on the Ekiti governorship poll as a patriotic Nigeria who wants the country’s democratic structures strengthened.
On the warrant of arrest issued to him by an Ado Ekiti Chief Magistrate’s Court for alleged perjury, the whistleblower declared that he is not aware of any of such warrant.
Aluko said: “I was not in court and I am not aware of any court order. In fact, they have made attempts on my life twice in the last 96 hours and if they are now talking about warrant of arrest, maybe it is to try their ability to bring me down so as to be able to poison me.
“The information available to me indicates that they are planning to set my houses in Ekiti ablaze and if anything like that happens, people should know whom to hold responsible.”
He also denied the states government’s allegation that he was involved in certificate racketeering while he worked with the Ekiti State University (EKSU).
He said, “Nigerians should know that these people are just attacking the messenger they are not addressing the message.
“The document (witness statement on oath) taken there (tribunal) was signed by the Secretary of the party (PDP) and that was in guiding the interest of the party. It was talking about Saturday, June 21, 2014 election while I am telling the story before June 21, 2014 election and there is no conflict about my position.
“One was talking about June 21, 2014 election, that day, Saturday while Dr. Temitope Aluko is now telling Nigerians about what happened pre-Saturday, June 21, 2014. I am now telling Nigerians what transpired before the election.
“So, I stand by what I said. I don’t know why they are making attempts on my life. By their rushing to the Magistrate’s Court, it is still part of their funny doings.
“I have nothing to be afraid of as a patriotic Nigerian, I owe it a duty to tell Nigerians what transpired so that we can deepen our democratic structures. I am not aware of any warrant of arrest.
“It is only the guilty that are afraid, resorting to self-help. All these moves are pointing to a sinister objective because Dr. Tope Aluko is talking about the pre-June 21, 2014 election day and it is separate from the PDP State Secretary’s position of June 21, 2014 election day.”
