Reports say that the bishop, Ezekiel Orhevba woke up on Tuesday last week to hear sounds of people calling his attention to some strange objects outside his house. Bishop Ezekiel however made it known that it is an alleged plot to kidnap and kill him over his petition to President Muhammadu Buhari on the state of the psychiatric hospital in Benin City. He said:
“I came from Abuja late last night and this morning, it was people from outside who alerted me that something strange was there, which I will call juju, when the police come, they will give it a better name.
“I have an issue with some people in the Federal Psychiatric Hospital, I think they should know something about this. I have a petition against six people there so there are proofs, these are exhibits against them. They think they can stop me from going to the police and maybe opt out of the case so that they can walk away as free men, but I am not deterred and victory is sure.”
