Alleged murder of Enugu PDP guber flagbearer, Peter Mbah, false – Media Office

The news of the alleged assassination of the elected governorship flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu State, Barr. Peter Ndubuisi Mbah, being circulated on social media has been dismissed as “fake, wicked and evil” by his media office.

A statement issued in Enugu on Sunday and signed by Dan Nwomeh on behalf of the Mbah Media Office said that Mbah is currently in Abuja after attending the PDP Presidential primary election that concluded Saturday night.

Nwomeh urged members of the public to ignore the fake news, advising the masterminds to play politics of moderation and sportsmanship.

The press statement titled “Fake news on the assassination of Dr Peter Ndubuisi Mbah” reads:

“We have been inundated with calls over fake news in circulation on some social media platforms on the purported assassination of the Enugu State PDP governorship flagbearer, Peter Ndubuisi Mbah.

“The story is false, wicked and evil.

“Our investigations indicate that the story was doctored from the video of the unfortunate gruesome assassination of one Dr Ndubuisi (real name: Professor Samuel Ndubuisi), the Director-General of the Science and Equipment Development Institute (SEDI), along the Enugu-Port Harcourt expressway, two years ago.

“It is the mere coincidence of “Ndubuisi” in the two names that have been twisted by some devious and malevolent characters to spread unfounded panic and alarm amongst our genuinely concerned teeming supporters and well-wishers in Enugu State and beyond.

“We condemn this wicked, ill-conceived misinformation and urge the masterminds to play politics of moderation and sportsmanship, have the fear of God and develop respect for the sanctity of human life”.
