The family of late industrialist, Chief Ezeife Amadi has appealed to the police for protection over persistent threat to life on members of the family.
Speaking to journalists in Lagos, one of the sons of Chief Amadi, Chinedu said his family has been living in fear of the unknown in the past two years following several threats on their lives.
” Some people are after our lives and we are appealing to the police to come to our aide before it is too late,” he said.
Chinedu noted that the threats started back in 2015 when an attempted to kill his younger brother, Joseph Amadi by some unknown assailant failed.
He stated that though the incident was reported then to the police, his brother Joseph and another member of his family has been on the run for their lives.
Chinedu further noted that recently, those threatening his family members have renewed their antics by sending threatening messages to them.
“We are compelled to raise this alarm because we believe it is the right thing to do in the present circumstance. In the last three months, two members of our family have received threats messages on their lives. We have again written to the police on this matter and we hope that a thorough investigation will be conducted to unmask those behind this threats.”
“We are not politicians, neither are we in any know conflict with anybody. We are peace loving people and have tried to leave at peace with people within our community. We are seriously using this medium to appeal to the police to look into this matter, he said.
