It has been reported that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Daniel Bwala will be arrested on fabricated charges by high-ranking officials at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Before switching to the opposition People’s Democratic Party in the run-up to the 2023 elections, Bwala served as an APC MP.
On Monday, he made the accusation in a post to his X social media account.
Bwala claimed that influential persons in and around the capital were plotting to have him arrested so that they could use him as political fodder and silence him.
It reads, in part, as follows: “Last night I got credible intelligence that some key people around the seat of power (Presidential Aso Villa) of this government are planning to use the security agencies to arrest me and take me into custody on trumped-up allegations in order to rubbish me and silence me.”
They and the government are uneasy with me. It is important that the world knows that I have always been aware that my beliefs and values, which are based on the same religion ticket that led to my leaving APC and taking a position as a political opposition, might cause me to be persecuted by the deep state.
If something bad were to happen to me, today would be the day to announce it to the world.
