Daniel Bwala, a lawyer and associate of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has alleged that some key people around the Bola Tinubu presidency are plotting his arrest and detention on trumped-up allegations.

The spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 2023 presidential campaign council said this in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Monday.

Bwala is a critic of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and some key figures in the present administration, including Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike.

However, he did not name those behind the alleged plot.

“Last night I got a credible intelligence that some key people around the seat of power (Presidential Aso Vila) of this government are planning to use security agencie(s) to arrest me and take me into custody on a trumped-up allegations in other to rubbish me and silence me. That I am making them and the government uncomfortable,” Bwala said.

Tagging some VIPs, including Vice President Kashim Shettima and Atiku, the lawyer-turned-politician urged Nigerians to hold the ruling party responsible should anything untoward happen to him.

“I have always known that from my stands on the same faith ticket which led to my leaving APC , and consequent posture as a political opposition, it might irk the deep state and come with persecution for what I believe in and stand for.

“If anything happens to me, let the world know today of their evil plans,” he said.
