Ebonyi Governor, David Umahi, has promised to expose a tape where a candidate of the main opposition party in the state revealed how they intended to foment trouble during the elections.
Naija News learnt that the governor spoke when the new Commissioner of Police, Mr. Awosola Awotunde, paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Abakiliki.
He said: “I learnt they are bringing in thugs who are camped in Enugu but fortunately, I am paying one of them.”I am trailing them and when they arrive in the state, we will round them up with the assistance of security agencies.”Any of them that we apprehend on our own would be kept in the state until after the elections.”
He pledged to cooperate with the new CP but insisted that his work would only be made tedious, “if a man is made a woman.”
He said: “Where there is fairness, there is no crisis as someone without a gun can neutralize another with a gun by insisting on his right, which should not be matched upon.
“The main opposition party in the state boasts it would write the election result and use the federal might on us but I declare that we pay the federal might.
“Everybody owns the federal might and the present Inspector-General of Police and the Director-General of the Department of State Service (DSS) do not break the law.
“We have actually prepared for this election with anti-terrorism trainings to guard against intimidation of the common man in the state,” the governor said.
