Widow of former Governor of Bayelsa State, Mr Diepreye Alameisegha, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of killing her husband.
At an occasion to mark the first year anniversary of the former Governor’s death yesterday, Mrs Margaret Alameiseigha claimed the leadership of the PDP frustrated and humiliated her husband, leading to his death last year.
According to her, the PDP-led government seized properties they had, which made him to start thinking and feeling embarrassed.
She exonerated the leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) from the events which led to the death of her man in October 2015.
Mrs Alameiseigha described her late husband as a man who wholeheartedly fought for the emancipation of the Ijaw people, but was sold out by the same people he fought for.
“It was the same people that he fought for that betrayed him. They sold him out to the PDP that eventually killed him. I want to advise the Ijaw people to stop betraying their leaders, so that they can move forward,” the former First Lady said.
“I can categorically say today that it was the PDP that arrested my husband, seized all his properties and humiliated him to the point of his death,”
“It was PDP that killed my husband and not the APC. It was PDP that arrested my husband, it was PDP that humiliated my husband and killed him. At the end they seized everything that belonged to him,” she told newsmen.
She said further that, “It was the PDP that tormented my husband and he died as a result of the humiliation he suffered in the hands of the PDP. As far as am concerned, the humiliated me and took everything away from us.
“When my husband took over the mantle of leadership, he saw how his people were suffering. As an intelligent man, he saw the need to fight for resource control as the way out for his people.”
