Abuja –based Magazine Publisher Cries Out Over Threat to His Life,Family

(Press Release)The Publisher of National Waves Magazine, Mr. Jimmy Enyeh has raised an alarm over the incessant threats to his life and that of his family from agents of the Chairman/CEO of A.A Oil Ltd, Alhaji Aliyu Abubakar, over a story titled “AA Oil boss in N650million Scam,” published in the September 2014 edition of the magazine.

Mr. Enyeh said that since the magazine hit the newsstands, he has received numerous calls from anonymous callers threatening to kill him and members of his family over the publication.

“These (anonymous) callers called me severally, intimidated, bullied and threatened me over the said publication. I was told to watch my back as they are after me and my family members”, he said.

Mr Enyeh stressed that he took the threats with a pinch of salt until recently when some unidentified young men in a black coloured Toyota SUV started trailing him.

According to Mr. Enyeh, before the said story was published, he wrote a letter dated 01/09/2014 to Alhaji Abubakar requesting to confirm the allegations of collecting the sum of N650million for unexecuted contracts in 2002 but as at the time of going to press on September 22, 2014, he did not respond to the letter.

On 29th September, 2014, the AA Oil boss wrote a letter to National WAVES through his lawyer demanding for proof of the published story.

National Waves replied the letter intimating him of a new twist which indicated that AA Oil allegedly collected part of the money from the office of the Head of Service.

Enyeh reiterated that Alhaji Aliyu should go to court to institute a case against him if he feels maligned by the story.

The statement did not indicate whether  Enyeh   has reported the threat to the police or not.
