FG Is Putting My Life In Danger - PDP Factional Chairman Baraje Cries Out


The factional National Chairman of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Abubakar Baraje, has cried out that his life is in danger following what he described as the latest onslaught against the officials of the faction.

In an exclusive chat with PREMIUM TIMES on Saturday, Mr. Baraje said all security personnel attached to him have been withdrawn by the government, thereby exposing him to danger.
We had earlier reported that Mr. Baraje and the other leaders of his faction have been placed under security watch by authorities. “My life is now in danger, whatever happens to me now, people should know where it is coming from,” he said.
He also said what is happening to him now is similar to what is happening to Mr. Amaechi after the latter’s security details were replaced without prior notice thus making him vulnerable to danger.
Mr. Baraje said the government is putting his life and that of his officers to risk. Mr. Baraje, a former acting national chairman of a united PDP, currently leads the PDP faction backed by seven state governors including Mr. Amaechi, and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
