Former senate President, David Mark has been advised to raising unnecessary allegations as a result of his evident loss in the forthcoming senatorial rerun elections in the Benue South Senatorial district. This call was made by the Nigerians in Diaspora Monitoring Group over his recent outburst claiming threat to life by the Benue State Deputy Governor. The group has described the call as laughable as according to them, the former Senate President is the one known for perpetuating violence in the zone even as he has already employed thugs and cultists to threaten the people ahead of the rerun election.
Speaking for the group Comrade Philip Agbese said for anyone to believe Mark’s claimed position about violence he should first and foremost “tell his campaign chiefs who are cultists to renounce their association with these groups to prove to the world that he is truly scared of the happenings”.
“It is however hilarious and comical for the man who houses lions and tigers to suddenly become scared of mere dogs. This character of David Mark once held the whole Idoma nation to the jugular with the aid of unscrupulous elements within the state and their connivance with those Vikings from University of Jos and Black Axe in Makurdi.”

He said. According to him, Mark’s recent outburst is stemmed from his fear of Senator George Akume whom he has severally mouthed and not Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi who coordinates the media team of Dan Onjeh against well paid hirelings David Mark’s campaign organization. He further threatened that if the former Senate President in anyway perpetuates his evil plans towards Ogenyi in any vein either directly or indirectly, he would be made a scape goat to perpetrators of electoral violence in Benue State in particular and Nigeria in general. The group has therefore declared that Idoma people are happy with the manifesto of Dan Onjeh as being propagated by Ogenyi and have resolved to cast their vote for Onjeh come February 20 and added that no amount of threat or intimidation will stop the people from exercising their franchise on that day.
