Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party, has claimed that his life is in danger after he alleged that former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Sen. Pius Anyim, tricked former President Goodluck Jonathan in the construction of the Centenary City.
In two different petitions by his lawyer, Kayode Ajulo, Ojougboh alleged that there are plans to kill him and the involvement of a foreign company in the alleged scam.
The Vice Chairman of the PDP for the South-South said, 'I have instructed my lawyers to forward petitions to the Government of the United Arab Emirates over the scam (allegedly) being perpetrated by Eagle Hills.'The petition should also be sent to the Nigerian Immigration Service over the activities of a notorious Mexican drug baron called Carlos Cabal that has been given the task to assassinate me; the European Union and the Government of Germany over the activities of Berger the Billfinger in Nigeria and African Human Rights Commission in The Gambia,' he said at a press briefing in Abuja.
Appealing to the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, to 'comprehensively investigate the murder allegations,' Ojougboh exonerated Jonathan from the scandal, saying if the ex-President had known what happened on the project, he would also not have done the ground-breaking ceremony of the city.
Ojougboh alleged that the fraud involved in the project was about N1.2bn and that the Federal Government was also going to lose about $4b from the project.
