Unfortunately for the hired killers or assassins, numbering 7 who stormed the hotel room of Peter Biye at the Greenland Hotel located at the GRA Maiduguri demanding for the whereabouts of Honourable Peter Biye from his PDP Gwoza LGA Chairman and Secretary who were at the lodge with others waiting for the lawmaker yesterday in the night.

According to eye witness (name withheld) who also narrowly escaped being unleashed said t”he civilian JTF came and introduced themselves and said they were sent on errand to kill the lawmaker that is why they demanded for his whereabout”.

The source further said when they refused to give out any reasonable answer that will lead to his whereabout, the 7 youths pour cold water on them and started beating them thoroughly and mercilessly before one of them escaped and went out to call the military men nearby on duty stationed at the circular road junction.”

“The soldiers came on time and luckily meet the 7 youths in action and arrested them. Pick them straight to Bawa Barracks for further interrogation. Because the 7 youths claimed they are members of the civilian JTF and sent on errand to kill the PDP House of Representatives Member representing Damboa Gwoza and Chibok Federal Constituency presently at the National Assembly.”

It will be recalled that the member was elected under the platform of the defunct ANPP but defected to PDP along with his boss former governor Ali Modu Sheriff.

However, security sources disclosed to our correspondent that as at the time of the attack or incident, investigation revealed that the lawmaker Peter Biye was not even in Maiduguri neither in his hotel room at the scene of the attack. He was said to be in Abuja with his family and has not even visited Maiduguri or his people at the IDPs camps in recent time neither commence his campaigns but his PDP Party LGA Chairman and Secretary along with few others are around to see him at the lodge but they did not also see or meet him before even the youths attacked them.”

“The 7 arrested youths are under the military custody for further interrogation because they alleged that they were send by Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State to kill the lawmaker Peter Biye. We have to ascertain the truth whether it is a lie or not or it is politics because campaigns have started before handing them over to the police for further necessary action or for them to face then wrath of the law”.
Meanwhile, in a swift reaction, the Borno State Commissioner of Home Affairs, Information and Culture, Honourable Mohammed Bulama said

“It’s a lie, d work of 5th columnists. Gov. Kashim Shettima neither believes in, nor promotes violence. Besides, given d massive and unprecedented support d APC in general and Gov. Shettima and his govt. enjoy in Borno, we have no reason to resort to violence.”
