- Impeachment: Governor of Edo state and Rivers states dare Jonathan
July 19, 2014
Despite his removal as the Governor of Adamawa State and threats of arrest for treason, impeached governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako had said that he would not withdraw his controversial memo to the northern governors even on his death-bed.
Nyako, who spoke through his media aide, Ahmad Sajoh, said information at his disposal had now shown that the Presidency and the Peoples Democratic Party were deeply involved in his impeachment.
There have been reports that Nyako, who has gone underground since his impeachment on Tuesday, would be arrested for treason over the memo to the northern governors on April 4, 2014.
Nyako, in the memo, had accused President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration of genocide against the North.
He had accused the administration of organising the killing of citizens and then quickly attributing same to the Boko Haram sect.
Nyako had stated, “Cases of mass murders by its bloody minded killers and cut-throats are well known, but it attributes the killings to the so-called Boko-Haram.
