2019: Senator threatens to unleash deadly ‘JUJU’ on Nigerian Soldiers (PHOTO)

A serving senator in Nigeria, Mr. Bassey Albert Akpan, has vowed to unleash fetish powers against the country’s armed forces.

According to APC Newspaper, Senator Akpan, who represents Akwa Ibom North East (Uyo) Senatorial District of Akwa Ibom State in the upper legislative house, hails from Ibiono Ibom Local Government Area, where a mysterious invisible power used for local conflicts reportedly held sway in the pre-colonial era.

The power is known as ‘Ekpe Ikpa Ukod’ in local parlance.

Legend has it that during war, ‘Ekpe Ikpa Ukod’ kills perceived enemies with reckless abandon.

Speaking on Saturday during a consultative visit to his kinsmen in Ibiono Ibom LGA, the senator urged Ibiono Ibom people to prepare well for the 2019 elections, and stressed that he will resist military presence with ‘ekpe ikpa ukod.’

“They have sent messages to me that they will bring armored cars to my compound during election with four soldiers escorting me to and from the polling unit. Since they are threatening us with federal might, we assure them that they will meet traditional might in Ibiono Ibom that D-day. That can never happen in Ibiono Ibom LGA.

“Don’t be worried by 2019. We have our votes, they have soldiers, they should know that Ibiono Ibom people are not cowards, we have traditional power which is stronger than their federal might. Let them consult our history.

“They think they can threaten and coerce me to join APC with court cases. Let the time come and they shall know”, the senator said.

The statement by Senator Bassey Albert, a core loyalist of the incumbent governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, comes after two PDP elders, Senator Anietie Okon and Otuekong Idongesit Nkanga, announced that they “(we) have declared war for the reelection of Governor Udom Emmanuel in 2019.”
