He said: “The public should know that Patrick Akpobolokemi is after my life. As far as he is concerned, I am his worst enemy. The wife is also showing a video of how I was beaten to a pulp, calling me names. That means these people will not end any of this until they have finished me up.

“Despite going to the court, the former NIMASA boss is still planning to kill me. So the best for me is to come to the public and cry for help. Let the whole public hear, so that whatever that happens to me, they should hold Patrick Akpobolokemi and his wife responsible.

“He is now using the police for a matter that is a none issue. I have once been detained at the Area Command, Opolo, after the first dehumanization and detention at Ekeki Police station and subsequently transferred to the Office of the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 16.

“I have seen the whole case and that the only problem they had with me is owing to the fact that I used to pray with his younger brother, Mr. Clement Akpobolokemi who is my friend and my prayers became a threat to him for reasons best known to him.

Kelly further alleged that while he served in the DSS, the Service’s intervention prevented the former NIMASA boss from dealing with him.

“If anything happens to my life or my family or his brother, Clement Akpobolokemi, Patrick Akpobolokemi and his wife should be held responsible”, he added.
