If the dead could speak, one of the prominent politicians in Delta State who will do all he can to stop the Delta State All Progressive Congress (APC) gubernatorial aspirant, Mr Ovedje Ogboru would have been late Senator Pius Ewherido, competent sources confided in SecretReporters.
For over one and half years, multiple sources claimed that late Ewherido was a cash cow to Ogboru until he could no longer bear it and had to cut political ties with the famous coup plotter, an action which made them enemies till he passed away, in what was suspected to be an assassination by poisoning, allegedly through his most trusted lover.
According to the sources, Ogboru specialized in giving targets to pay to his company, originally registered for fish business, but turned into an avenue for political duping.
We can report authoritatively that for over ten years, Fiogret Ltd with account number 0006170241 domiciled in Union Bank has recorded over N3 billion inflows, with none coming from fishing but political kickbacks of politicians who won election under his Democratic Peoples Party (DPP) and Labor Party. To get a House of Assembly ticket under the LP when he was the Guber candidate, an aspirant must cough out a whopping sum of N40 million, which is paid into Fiogret and keeps paying until the tenure is over, alleged our source who’s very close to Ogboru.
“At times, if he does not want people to know that it’s only Fiogret collecting all the money, he will give the aspirants the account number of one of his mistresses for them to pay into”, stated the source.
Ogboru who has declared this year as his last political journey if he fails the 2019 election didn’t pick calls when we contacted him to get his reaction to this story.
