Celebrity businessman, Ned Nwoko has raised alarm over plans to assassinate him and his youngest wife, Regina Daniels.
The former house of Representatives member made this known at a press conference organized alongside his wife Regina on Thursday, Feb 11, in Abuja.
According to Ned, the assassination plot may have been in connection with a piece of land in his community in Delta where he intends to construct a University on.
He also stated that a disagreement involving who the next traditional ruler of his town would be was also another significant factor.
Prince Ned Nwoko disclosed that the assassination plot was leaked by one Mr Ossy Bosah who was an inmate at Kuje Prison in Abuja.
The prisoner had overhead other fellow prisoners talking about the attempt on his life.
Following the exposition of the plot, Nwoko said that Bosah’s life was threatened via text messages, regretting that shortly after he was released from the prison, he died mysteriously.
In his words;
”Bosah was able to get the information on social media and the attention of my wife, Regina, was drawn to it. I then reported the matter to the police and Department of State Security (DSS) and they went and interviewed the inmates involved,” he said.
The inmates mentioned the name of one businessman who deals in the oil and gas sector as the master minder.”
