Peter Dada, Akure

A governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress in the last governorship election in Ondo State, Mrs. Jumoke Anifowose has alleged that she has been receiving death threat from some chieftains of the party in the state following her insistence to continue her court case against Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.

The APC officers in Igboroko 1 ward two of Owo Local Government had placed suspension on Anifowose, who is the daughter of the first Executive Governor of the old Ondo State, Late Chief Michael Ajasin, for involving in anti-party activities .

Anifowose, who spoke with our correspondent on the telephone, on Thursday, said her life was under threat, adding that some APC chieftain in the state had been after her to assassinate her in order for her case to die a natural death.

She said, “They are after my life, I have been warned to stay away from the state for now, they are planning to assassinate me, they know if I die the case would die. They have come to beg me, it was when I refused that they began the plan to get rid of me. But their plans have been exposed to me, I know all of them. There is nothing that can stop me from pursuing the case to a logical conclusion. I am going to the Appeal Court and Akeredolu will lose.”

On her purported suspension, Anifowose she had not been suspended because she had not been communicated officially by the party officials, saying she only read it on the social media. She also denied being involved in anti-party activities.

“I am not suspended and I did not involve in any anti-party activities, it is Akeredolu and his people that worked for AA (Action Alliance) in the last general election. He told me to join him in the anti-party but I refused, I am an APC person. I contributed so much to the party, it is what I build upon that all of the are eating today in the party,” the APC chieftain stated.
