Billionaire businessman, Ned Nwoko this known at a press conference organized alongside his wife Regina on Thursday, Feb 11, in Abuja.
According to the former member of the House of Representatives, the plot was leaked by an inmate in Kuje Prison, Abuja who overheard other prisoners talking about the attempt on his life.
Prince Ned Nwoko added that it may have been in connection with a piece of land in Delta State which he intends to construct a University on, and also a disagreement involving who the next king of his town would be.
The politician added that the inmate in question died mysteriously after getting series of threats following his release from prison.
“I then reported the matter to the police and Department of State Security (DSS) and they went and interviewed the inmates involved. The inmates mentioned the name of one businessman who deals in the oil and gas sector as the master minder,” Ned noted.
