Ned Nwoko, the husband to popular Nollywood actress Regina Daniels, has raised alarm over alleged plan to take his life and that of his wife.
The former member of the House of Representatives raised the alarm at a press briefing he organized alongside his wife Regina Daniels on Thursday, Feb 11, in Abuja.
Ned said that the assassination plot had a connection to the ongoing struggle for kingship of his native community in Delta State and tussle over a piece of land on which he plans to build a private university.
According to the billionaire businessman, the kingmakers have settled the kingship matter while allocation of the land to him followed due process.
Speaking on the threat to his life, the politician said that the assassination plot was exposed on social media by an inmate in Kuje Prison Abuja who overheard two fellow prisoners discussing the plot. He said the matter had been reported to the Nigerian Police Force.
Ned alao revealed he has petitioned the Inspector General of Police (IGP) about the plot to attack and kill him.
The petition read in part : “Kindly recall the issue of the land which was duly allocated to me by my community ( Idumuje- Ugboko, Aniocha North Local Govt . Area, Delta State ) upon which I am building a private University of Sports – first of its kind in sub – Sahara Africa.
“I was reliably informed by my wife, Regina Daniels, who was also informed by one Mr Wale Jana that the suspects who were arrested and remanded at the Kuje Correctional Centre in connection with the murder case in my village are plotting to cause me harm and possibly kill me.”
Ned called on the security agencies to take action over the threat to his life, stating that the inmate who leaked the information about the plot died under unexplained circumstances.
