It Was Ngige Who started kidnapping in Anambra – Obi

October 17, 2013

As the battle for Anambra hits up, the salvos are being fired from one camp to another. Governor Peter Obi on Wednesday accused Anambra former governor, Chris Ngige as the initiator of kidnappings in the state. Obi declared this at a political rally of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Onitsha.

Chris Ngige is gearing up for the highest seat in the state under the candidacy of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Obi, who called on the people of the state to dismiss as a ruse Ngige’s claim that he was coming to the governorship seat to strengthen the security of the state, said that it was even ironical that Ngige was also the first victim of kidnapping in the state.

Meanwhile, the aspiration of Chief Willie Obiano for the governorship position of Anambra State has received a big boost with the endorsement of his candidacy by several groups, just as they trooped out in their numbers to the Holy Trinity venue of the APGA rally in Onitsha.

Diverse groups, including the members of the state house of assembly, group of former aspirants of the APGA who lost to Obiano at the primary election, all student union bodies in Anambra State and association of Presidents General of the 177 communities in Anambra State, were present at the rally.

Onitsha Bridgehead Traders Association, Truck Drivers Association, Onitsha, Drug Dealers Association, Tricycle Operators Association, various trades unions, youths’ groups, market associations, among others also closed their shops to show solidarity to the APGA candidate.
