Ex- Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Anyim Pius Anyim, has reached out to the government about a perceived threat to his life and property. He urged the President for more security details to avoid any danger coming to him.
The former SGf raised this concern through a petition he wrote in a publication by Sahara Reporters. In the publication, Anyim revealed that he was being probed over allegations that he is providing finances for the pro-Biafra agitators.
In his petition, Anyim connected the probe to a media attack on his person and that he is forced to seek protection from the government,
the desperation that has sustained the evil elements in the last five months could drive them to become even more vicious and deadly.
I have taken time in the last five months to uncover the masterminds of this dangerous plan and my findings reveal a bunch of touts and hirelings with a track record of dangerous capacity to commit any harm. They operate as a network and recruit other elements, when necessary, to act as their undercover agents.
They occasionally appear frontal and, at other times, act as if they are faceless. They are well organised and employ multiple strategies to sustain their plans, including blackmail and spurious allegations.
It may interest Mr. President to note that following my resolve to maintain my decency and absolute faith in God, I have watched their orchestrations unfold in the last five months. I may not need at this point to name the suspected masterminds but I believe that a clear presentation of their mode of operation would provide a useful lead to the investigating authorities.”
Meanwhile the top Nigerian politician from the south-east decided to open up about his stance after it was purported that he was the patron of the agitators whose agitations had resulted in the bloodshed and several ruins in Onitsha lately.
