Mr Yusuf Isyaku, the state Director of DSS, while receiving Emeakayi in his office, assured him that the agency was investigating the allegation.

“I have respect for you, you would have come to my office, without coming with these people here today over the matter,’’ he said.

Emeakayi in a letter dated March 7, said the governor personally threatened to kill him in a telephone discussion.

“The climax was when in a telephone conversation on Feb. 23, the governor of Anambra, Chief Willie Obiano, directly by himself, threatened to kill me.
