A 2023 Governorship aspirant on the platform of the National Rescue Movement, NRM, Ambassador Sobomabo Jackrich has accused the Rivers State Government of attempting to frame him and his followers up with trump of charges in order to derail his ambition.
Jackrich who told reporters in Port Harcourt that he is law-abiding and has never engaged in any criminal endeavor, alleged that some highly placed persons in the state government are scared of his good plans to rescue Rivers people from bad governance and have decided to silence him.
He expressed his fears in a joint briefing with the leadership of the NRM in the state.
Chairman, NRM, Rivers State, Ibiyekaribo Peters, said Information available to the group has it that part of the plot is to frame up Jackrich with unsubstantiated accusations and contract some witnesses to testify against him in order for him to be invited by security agencies for questioning, and in the process, detain him on orders of some highly placed officials of the Rivers State Government.
“The move according to our source, is to ensure that our leader, Sobomabo Jackrich is kept at abeyance out of the political system in the state until the 2 023 political season is over, as he is seen as one of their biggest threat that may thwart their plans to enthrone their stooges to lead the state in the next political dispensation.
“We gathered where such plot fails, they may resort to approaching the courts to surreptitiously obtain a legal pronouncement in order to arrest and detain our leader till after the 2023 political season.
“In event where the above plots failed, they may resort to assassinating our leader.”
The NRM Chairman maintained that Jackrich is a responsible and law abiding citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and is not involved in any criminal activity, and therefore has nothing to hide.
He added that his passion as a freedom fighter and political activist is about seeing to the wellbeing of Rivers people and development of the Niger Delta region.
