Senator Godswill Akpabio has claimed that some of his colleagues are under the influence of “Tramadol” following the invasion of the National Assembly by DSS operatives.
According to Akpabio, who on Wednesday left the Peoples Democratic Party for the All Progressives Congress, the allegation that he masterminded the invasion by men of the Department of State Services, is a pure lie.
“I shouldn’t have mentioned his name but because he believes in lies, Ben Bruce, he should come and complete the Tropicana, a tourist facility in Akwa Ibom,” the lawmaker said.
“How can I stay in my house and he starts shouting that I am in the national assembly just to damage my name?
“I was inside a plane to join you yesterday and he was shouting look at what Akpabio is doing to us. I cannot be a terrorist. I don’t know what they were doing at the national assembly. Some of them went there and were without shoes. I am a man of peace.
“I even called security to help take them home, because some of them must have taken Tramadol. Please, I was never at the national assembly. By right, they should be at home because we are on recess.”
