An Abuja based Human Rights Lawyers, Barrister Victor Giwa, has written the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice and the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Kayode Egbetokun, over allegation of assassination attempt against him.

The lawyer in a petition to the AGF and the IGP dated June 19, 2024, which he personally signed, said there were plans to implicate him with trump up charges, detain him in police custody and poison him.

According to the petition, obtained by our correspondent, Barrister Giwa, specifically, pointed accusing finger CSP Francis Mega as the officer working with Asabe on the plot.

He is seeking the intervention and protection of the AGF and the IGP against the plot to keep him in detention.

Barrister Giwa said in the petition, “Sir, I seek to draw your attention to the concluded plot and plans by one ASABE WAZIRI in conjunction with some police officers using one CSP Francis Mega to eliminate me either by arranging my detention in the police cell or using some ‘’arranged’’ judicial officers and magistrate to keep me in correctional center with the intention of poisoning my food while in custody. “

In the petition, he narrated the events that led to the alleged plot.

According to him, the plot was as a result of his fierce stand against Asabe in connivance with some police officers to forcefully take over a disputed property in 1Mekong Close, Maitama, Abuja, binging to his client.

He said both his client and Asabe entered into a transaction on the purchase of two flats at a discounted rate of N260,000,000 at N130, 000,000 per flat, and that full payment be made withing one year of taken possession.

He said after Asabe deposited the sum of N50,000,000 and she was given possession of the two flats with the keys, subject to a formal contract on completion of payment, on taking possession of the flats the said she became a threat to other occupants of the premises, the whole occupiers of the flats were greeted with daily troubles.

“Such that sometimes in December, 2021, when Asabe Waziri was refused by the management of the property to paint her common area with a different colour of paint from the original white colour in line with the terms of the apartment, Asabe forcefully brought in two bouncers who forcefully entered into the premises with a painter, a brawl started and the apartment’s lawyer that came to inquire about the incident was beaten and his shirt torn to pieces on the instruction of Asabe Waziri.

“The case was reported to Maitama police station and an FIR was raised against Asabe but before she was taken to court one DIG Zaki (Rtd) made a call to the DPO of the Maitama Police and the case was suspected”, he said

He also said in the petition, the “After several attempt to forcefully gain access to the premises, the latest was on the 15th June 2024, Asabe Waziri has now conspired with one CSP Francis Mega and some other police officers to arrange my detention in the Cell or possible set up a trump up charge against me with some arranged courts to put me in custody and poison me.

“A voice record of the plot was sent to my phone on Saturday by unknown person.

“Following this development, my Life is no longer safe as Asabe Waziri who always boast of her all the connection and control of persons in the judiciary, DPP and police institution to carry out her threat and her bid and she has shown such capability and connection as police officers are constantly doing her bidding threatening my arrest and detention and arranging my arraignment in court.

“I therefore seek the following prayers:
That ASABE WAZIRI be investigated and arrested for her plot to kill me
That compromise of police officers, investigators judicial officers and officers of the Department of Public prosecution (DPP) Police protection for me against Asabe Wazi and her cohorts”.
