The mystery behind the death of Hon. Damian Egwuasi a fast raising politician from Abia State seems to be creating more tension amongst the political class in Nigeria and especially Abia State.  The politician who was previously the Financial Secretary of his party the PDP in Abia state was found dead and dumped near Sabon Gari market in Kano less than 2 weeks to the PDP Abia state chairmanship election of which he is a contestant.
The death of the politician which occurred in 2012 is one of the various assassinations that has been recorded in the state, these assassinations are usually linked to some prominent political moguls who are making frantic effort to remain in power and continue siphoning the state resource for personal use.
In the case of Hon. Damian Egwuasi, he was earlier accused of embezzling the parties fund through a bogus contract, an accusation he denied.   Damian described the accusation as a political witch hunt aimed at discrediting  and discouraging him from contesting for the state chairman of PDP in Abia state.
Recently, an associate of Hon. Damian, Chief Ojukwu Okafor who claimed to have information that will led to the arrest of those behind the death of Hon. Damian has gone underground because he has received several threat messages, calls and even attempts on his life. Even after reporting his experience to security agencies, nothing concrete was done to protect him, so he decided to go underground and hold on to his secret.
Abia State political space can best be described as a danger zone, the do or die attitude towards power is unprecedented, even family members of politically expose persons are not spared when their wards step on toes.
Recently, we learnt that family members of Hon. Damian Egwuasi are all on the run because they were also targeted by the same individuals that killed him, it is believed that Damian’s family members were preview to some information surrounding his murder. An anonymous person informed Abia Facts Newspaper that Hon. Damian and his family members had a very close relationship, he always informs them of all of his activities. We learnt that on one of the evenings with his family he alleged that one Chief Obike Amos called to warn him about his aspiration of becoming the party chairman, he also said that Obike advised him to step aside as he will be compensated, but he refused and insisted on contesting. Our source also informed us that Hon. Damian transferred some threat messages he received to his family members, which we learnt has been presented to the police with no result forthcoming.
The death of Hon. Damian has cast a shadow of fear in Abia State and until the police resolve this incident the fear will remain.‎
