“Time will come when Nigerians will know this types of characters; characters that will say all kinds of things because of power; characters that will be agents to destroy their own people…they should take one-day fasting and pray for their forgiveness because from what I have seen they are almost doomed,” the governor said at the event.”

“There is no amount of threats that will make me betray my people. I won’t do that; what I have said today is what I will say tomorrow. Go and check our history, we are not known for being betrayals at all.”

He finished his speech and was proceeding to leave the podium when an unidentified man grabbed the Governor’s legs from behind.
