|SSS Absolves Governor Akpabio Of Plot To Kill Senator Etok by Joeadamu86: 7:30am On May 07, 2013|
The Nigerian secret service set to charge suspect to court.
The State Security Service, SSS, said on Monday that it will soon charge to court a 29-year-old graduate of Mechanical Engineering who claimed to have been contracted by the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio, to kill Aloysius Etok, a senator.
The Deputy Director, Public Relations of the Service, Marilyn Ogar stated this at a press conference in Abuja today.
She said that Mr. Etok, last month, reported to the Service that Mr. Olaore telephoned him to inform him that he had been contracted by Mr. Akpabio’s loyalists to kill the senator.
She added that upon receiving the information from the senator, the Service asked him to play along and thereafter he (senator) invited Mr. Olaore, an indigene of Osun State though born in Rivers State, to Abuja where he lodged the suspect in a hotel.
Mrs. Ogar said that in the course of interrogation, the suspect confessed that he hatched the plot when he stumbled on the senator’s complimentary card at the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, from where he obtained the senator’s number.
According to her, Mr. Olaore, who admitted being aware of the political differences between Messrs Etok and Akpabio over the Ikot Ekpene Senatorial seat by 2015, seized the opportunity to contact the senator.
Mr. Olaore, she added, introduced himself as “General Africa” an ex-militant from Bayelsa State and told the senator that he had been hired to kill him.
The SSS spokesperson stated that during the investigation, Mr. Olaore revealed that he had never met Mr. Akpabio; the Commissioner for Environment or one Kenneth (a.k.a Wayas), the Chairman of Etinan Local Government Area who he initially alleged hired him to assassinate the senator.
Mr. Olaore, she added, told the Service that he offered to broker peace between the senator and the governor and also requested for transport fare to Akwa Ibom where he intended to initiate the peace meeting between both parties.
“From the foregoing, Olaore hatched the phantom assassination plot to fraudulently extort money from Senator Aloysius Etok by exploiting the perceived rift between him and Governor Akpabio. Consequently, Olaore will be charged to court soon,” Mrs. Ogar said.
The SSS spokesperson also warned members of the public to be wary of individuals who exploit activities, be it political, religious or economic for criminal ends.
She restated that the long arm of the law will catch up with enemies who take to crime and criminality, adding “let us collectively remain vigilant and report suspicious activities and individuals to security agencies.”
