Mrs. Margaret Alamieyeseigha, widow of a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of being responsible for the death of her husband.
She made the startling revelation during the one-year memorial event of Alamieyeseigha in the late politician’s country home in Amassoma, Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the state, it was learnt.
The widow, who spoke in an interview with some journalists recently recalled that it was the PDP that frustrated and sent her husband to his early grave and not the All Progressives Congress as widely speculated.
According to her:
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 death.It was the PDP that killed my husband and not the APC. It was PDP that arrested my husband, it was the PDP that humiliated my husband and killed him. At the end they seized everything that belonged to him.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 I am concerned, they humiliated us 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.
