"Deputy Speaker Lasun, Whip Doguwa and Minority Leader Ogor are using Hon Hembe to either assassinate or kidnap me or members of my family.
"The initial silence of the PMB on the matter was a blessing in disguise bcos if the President had spoken much earlier he would have been accused of using me to fight the House Leadership but the time is now ripe and the crisis mature for the President to break his silence.
"As the silence of the presidency at this stage is not sending the right message to Nigerians and the international community.
