I wish to use this opportunity to debunk a media report published on
May 21, 2014 in “The Nation newspapers” in which the Rivers State
chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) made a frivolous and
spurious claim that the Honorable Minister For Education, Chief(Barr)
Nyesom Wike paid the sum of N25million to me, Chief Solomon Ndigbara
during his last visit.
I state for the records that this is a calculated attempt not just to
smear my good name but a direct plot against my life by the Rt. Hon.
Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi’s led All Progressive Congress in Rivers
It is on record that there had been several attempts at my life by the
Rivers State Government which led to the institution of a legal action
against the Rivers State Governor, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, Senator

action was infringement of my fundamental human rights as a citizen of
As you may be aware, judgment was given in my favor and ever since
then, I continue to receive threats even though they are yet to comply
with the orders of the court with the payment of the N50million to me.
Rather than paying me the compensation awarded by the court, they now
seek to kill me.
The APC in Rivers State should know that lying against me and placing
their spies to monitor my personal life will not guarantee their
success in the forth-coming elections in Rivers State.
As usual, the APC in Rivers State wants to send me away so that they
can do their manipulation and terrorism in Rivers State ahead of the
At a time I have committed my personal resources to peace building in
Ogoniland, the APC in Rivers State wants to deceptively use lies to
hatch their plot against my life.
I am therefore calling on the Nigerian Government, the United Nations
High Commission For Human Rights, The United States Government, the
U.K government and all lovers of peace and free societies to prevail
on the Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi led All Progressive Congress (APC) in
Rivers State to spear my life.
Chief Solomon Ndigbara
Ambassador for Peace,
