A group supporting the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, has faulted the Presidency and the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, of a sinister plot to assassinate Gen. Buhari.
The Buhari Vanguard, in a statement released on Monday, disclosed that they had become “extremely concerned” over the safety of the APC candidate.
“We cannot close our eyes and pretend that we do not see danger. We suspect that the PDP and the Presidency must be up to something sinister and may just be watering the ground for a soft landing when it is finally executed,” said Jasper Azuatalam, chairman of the group.
“We express fear that some people may be targeting to assassinate Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and turn round to claim that it is their prophecy fulfilled.
“We have not forgotten that late last year, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari narrowly escaped death when his convoy was attacked by a suicide bomber two days after he accused the Presidency of not doing enough to ensure the security of lives and properties of Nigerians.
“President Jonathan set up an inquiry into the attack, but we have not heard anything about the inquiry till date.”
The group further revealed that the recent paid advertorials on national newspapers by some prominent PDP members predicting Gen. Buhari’s death are part of a plot to test the waters before carrying out their motive.
