He spoke on Monday when he addressed journalists in Abuja to give account of what transpired in the attack on his person by suspected All Progressives Congress (APC) hoodlums at a polling unit in Auchi.
Dokpesi who said he was shocked by Governor Oshiomhole’s allegations against him while a guest on a news channels TV station, said; “My relationship with the governor has been cordial and amounts to brotherhood. When he was seeking office for the first and second tenure and through his travails at the tribunal, we have been together.
“I am extremely shocked about his allegations against me. I refuse to join issues with him. When the incident happened, I sent a text message to my brother, Adams Oshiomhole, but it is like the elections had gone into his head. He replied that he was very sorry about what happened and that I should call him when I get to Abuja.”
Narrating what happened, Dokpesi recalled that on Saturday 28th, March, at about 5.20pm on his way back to Abuja, he received a distress call from one of PDP women leaders in Auchi, Haifa Inundated Umoru alleging that there was no security presence at her polling unit and that the APC led by the zonal chairman, one Usman Malawi and a man popularly called Agbor were with thugs carrying dangerous weapons.
“There was no accreditation of voters as the card readers were not functional. Usman Magaji started paying out from two to five thousand Naira to whosoever agreed to vote for the APC candidates . As I was on my way to Abuja, I called on the Area Commander of Police in Auchi as well as the Brigade Commander to assist to provide some armed security.”
Commenting on how he was attacked, Dokpesi said he remained in his jeep when Magaji and Agbor pointed him out to their supporters to kill, burn and destroy his vehicle. They also ordered that the weapons of the soldiers and police be seized.
Showing journalists the incidented vehicle which had bullet holes said he escaped death by the whiskers.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
