While calling on President Muhammadu Buhari; the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu; the Inspector-General of Police, Alkali Baba Usman and the Director-General of the Department of State Security, Yusuf Bichi, to save his life, he said the duo should be blamed if anything happens to him.

He said, “This is to alert Nigerians and security agencies to the many threats to my life since I led the protest by Concerned Enugu APC members to the national secretariat of our party against the impunity, gross misconducts, divisiveness, maladministration by Chief Ugochukwu Agballah and the governorship candidate, Chief Uche Nnaji.

“I have no other persons to hold responsible for these numerous threats to my life except Ugochukwu Agballah and Uche Nnaji.”

However, the state APC chairman. reacting to the allegation through his Special Adviser on Media, Kenneth Ofoma, denied the allegation while describing Ude as an attention seeker.
