Following the severe beating our cameraman, Chinedu on Wednesday by men who introduced themselves as coming from the Office of the Special Assistant  to the Governor of Anambra State on Security, we have reported the matter to the Police at the B-Division Police Station Awka.

The Police in Awka have gladly provided the security cover for us to exercise ur right to cry when beaten. They have accompanied us to the scene of this unpardonable crime from Anambra State Government and APGA at this stage of our political development and we are glad to have enlisted the services of external photographers to get  he pictures we must get within our right of fair hearing ,as yet in the Court of public opinion.
As per enclosed photographs, the operatives of Anambra State government and removed the flex bearing the information, even after felling the board, as displayed by us on Tuesday and further shown by Mr Ike Oligbo the sponsor of the billboard (earlier photo also attached)
What is left is the skeleton of the board, even as we have received reports that another bill board of Senator Chris Ngige, standing roughly two kilometres from the Amaku General Hospital victim billboard at the precincts of  Transport Company of Anambra State (TRACAS), has equally been destroyed.
While pursuing  our case through the due process to get our camera recovered from the Government House in Awka, we appeal to well-meaning Nigerians to advise Governor Peter Obi and APGA  sell the programmes and manifestos, if any, of their candidate(s) to the voting public of Anambra State and allow others to do so, rather than trying to stifle the political space in a manner that reminds one of the era of military governance.

We know that there is no democracy in APGA. Otherwise, their leader Gov Obi would not have supported 16 votes to prevail over 19 in the May elections of the Nigerian Governors ‘Forum and would not have gone ahead to manipulate  his business partner into the factional ticket of the party ,at the expense of more worthwhile candidates.
We are  however quick to remind all that our decision to be law-abiding ,follow the due process and refrain from any retaliation is not borne out of weakness, but because , our party APC is peopled by highly principled and experienced men and women who love Anambra State and will stop at nothing to create a peaceful environment in it,including Senator Chris Ngige, candidate to beat on November 16, 2013.
We have not forgotten that aspect of history which saw Governor Peter Obi collaborating with federal forces and their local foot soldiers in the state   to abduct a sitting governor  at some point in order to satisfy an ambition which in their own view was apparently delayed ,going  the lawful way.
We know it for a fact that Anambra State was victories in that battle over undemocratic and unethical forces and the man whom the current government in the state is persecuting at the moment was the arrowhead in that liberation of the state.
With that ambition clearly satisfied -whether Anambra State gained or lost- Governor Obi is invited to give peace a chance and desist from tampering with the election materials of Senator Chris Ngige, which saw his unpopular hand-picked candidate removing Ngige;s posters in strategic places in Anambra State to replace with this own yesterday.

We take this opportunity to invite the elders of Anambra State to advise Obi in timing and content of his actions in order not to harm the fragile peace  of Anambra State.
