My life is in danger – Pius Ayim

Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Anyim Pius Anyim, has cried out over what he describes as a threat to his life and has therefore asked President Muhammadu Buhari for extra security.

In the petition, Mr. Anyim said he was compelled to seek protection from government because of “the desperation that has sustained the evil elements in the last five months could drive them to become even more vicious and deadly.

He said: “I have taken time in the last five months to uncover the masterminds of this dangerous plan and my findings reveal a bunch of touts and hirelings with a track record of dangerous capacity to commit any harm. They operate as a network and recruit other elements, when necessary, to act as their undercover agents.

“They occasionally appear frontal and, at other times, act as if they are faceless. They are well organised and employ multiple strategies to sustain their plans, including blackmail and spurious allegations.

“It may interest Mr. President to note that following my resolve to maintain my decency and absolute faith in God, I have watched their orchestrations unfold in the last five months. I may not need at this point to name the suspected masterminds but I believe that a clear presentation of their mode of operation would provide a useful lead to the investigating authorities.”

He, therefore, urged the government to uncover
all those involved in the plan and bring them to book.

It will be recalled that the petition is coming few days after online newspaper, Sahara Reporters, stated on December 2, that the former SGF was under investigation over allegations that he is funding pro-Biafra protests in the South- East, which Mr. Ayim promptly denied, linking the report to a sustained media attack on his person.
