The former Special Assistant to the President on Prosecution, Chief Okoi Obono-Obla has declared as wicked and unacceptable, the alleged oppression, victimization and injustice meted against Prof. Zana Akpagu in the September 3rd APC senatorial primary for Cross River North, oyogist.com reports

Recall that Prof. Akpagu won from the votes collated from the field at the party’s collation centre in Ogoja but the Chairman of the APC primary panel, Alhaji Suleiman Nakowa who left before results were collated announced Joe Agi, SAN who came second as winner of the election.

Obono-Obla in a statement said that being a victim of oppression and victimization himself, he understands how it feels when injustice is meted on people.

Narrating how former Senate President, Bukola Saraki single handedly upturned his nomination into the board of Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) as non-executive Commissioner, he said that injustice under any guise shouldn’t be tolerated.

According to him “I abhor every injustice under any guise. I have suffered injustice and oppression and victimization. I have suffered persecution, prosecution and witch hunt.


In November 2017, former Senate President, Bukola Saraki wrongly wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari that the Senate did not confirm my nomination to be a non executive commissioner in the Nigerian Communications Commission even though the Senate in its plenary approved my nomination.

I was victimized because I appeared before the Senate Committee on Human Rights and Judiciary to defend the arraignment of the then Senate President and Deputy Senate President in Court by the office of the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation in my capacity then as special assistant to the president on prosecution”.

He added that “I was unjustly victimized, disgraced and humiliated on trumped up allegations for fearlessly and uncompromisingly doing the work Mr President gave me. I was unjustly detained for 20 days and my blood sample taken.

So I know how it is to be victimized, oppressed and visited with injustice. I stand with Professor Zana Akpagu. I have fought injustice all my life so I never be privy to any act of injustice under any guise”.
