“There was an attempt by some thugs to kidnap me on my way for some crucial meetings in my senatorial district on Saturday. I saw people, I am not sure if they are real Policemen or not, blocking my convoy, telling me that the governor and the commissioner of Police wanted me in Owerri.

“I asked if they knew who they were talking to and they said yes. I asked if they were arresting or inviting me, they said it was an invitation.

“I told them if it was an invitation, they should drop the letter and go but they refused. They blocked me on all sides. It wasn’t funny.

“A night before that day, in one of the meetings, the governor boasted that I will not be available during the primaries and cognisance of that statement, I asked if they had come to make real the threat by the governor.”

“When they were not behaving themselves, the community people, by the market square where we were apprehended came out in their number to confront them, that was how they left.”
