| June 28, 2013 More

Lagos โ€” The government of Bauchi State yesterday dis-closed that it had uncovered a plot by agents of destabilisation to cause anarchy in the state and discredit the governor Isa Yuguda-led government.

It further stated that it had uncovered the masterminds of the plot and would swoop into action against them as soon as it gets complete details of the plot and the collaborators.

This was made known in a statement issued in Lagos by Ishola Michael Adeyemi, Chief Press Secretary to the Bauchi State Governor.

The statement said: “The Bauchi State Govern-ment has uncovered a plot by some misguided and anti-progress elements to plunge the state into a crisis, using agents of destruction within and outside the state to cause disharmony and disaffection among the people of the state towards discrediting and destabilizing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led Administration of the Executive Governor, His Excellency, Mallam (Dr.) Isa Yuguda.

“It has also been discovered that the brains behind this evil plot against the government and good people of Bauchi State have recruited and engaged malleable newspaper columnists, hack-writers, propaganda merchants and rumour vendors to spread rumour, raise false alarm, and publish deliberate misinformation about the state and the Chief Executive with a view to imposing hate, fear and terror, thereby scaring citizens, residents, visitors and genuine investors from engaging in peaceful, productive and legitimate business in the state.”

The government said it was still studying the details of the plot and disclosed that its investigations so far had revealed the involvement of ‘three wealthy, highly-placed and influential persons’.

“These three arrowheads of the plot have held clandestine meetings in some capital cities within and outside the country, especially in the high-brow districts of Maitama and Asokoro in Abuja where no less than five meetings have taken place with some top politicians, opposition figures and media persons in attendance. None of the meetings in Abuja lasted less than four hours,” it added.
