The latest wave of attacks by a certain Inibehe Effiong against Akwa Ibom State government over the murder of Miss Iniubong Umoren has been described as highly insensitive and not capable of coming from a sane or rational mind.

The group is miffed that the Lagos based lawyer whom it described as an emergency activist, picked a flight to the state via Ibom Air to launch media blackmail against Akwa Ibom State government in a bid to score cheap political capitals from the recent unfortunate incident.

In a statement endorsed by the Coordinator of the group, Mr. Ernest Akpan and Secretary, Joseph Okon, the MANDATE EYES enjoined members of the public to ignore his rant, noting that Inibehe’s frustration started in 2015 election where his hope of securing an appointment as Media Aide to his Governorship candidate at the time collapsed same year.

“For those who are not aware, Inibehe’s problem is far from the smokescreens he usually presents as veils to attack every.development in the state.

“His problem actually dates back to 2015 when he was one of the media hirelings in the employ of the APC governorship candidate, Mr Umana Umana, and ended up in the tribunal courtroom, not as a lawyer, but an emergency fake journalist that churned out falsehoods as against the facts in the tribunal”.

“The moment his principal Mr Umana Umana’s dream of unseating Mr Udom Emmanuel as Governor, failed at the supreme court in February 2016, there marked the failure of Inibehe Effiong to be a PA on Media to a Governor, and then began his relentless, endless and yet futile media battles against the incumbent Government in Akwa Ibom State.

“We are shocked to understand that Barr. Inibehe Effiong flew in the state owned Airline, Ibom Air, all the way from Lagos to Uyo, to insult the people, all in the name of fighting for justice for late Iniobong Umoren.

“For someone who sees nothing good about the industrial drive of the present government, including the airline, we wonder why he could make use of such a facility he claims is unnecessary and nonexistent”.

However, the group said it is not surprised at the Uniuyo law graduate’s action, as such has always been his stock in trade.

The MANDATE EYES averred that Inibehe earns a living from media blackmail as dictated by his ‘paymasters’, but cautioned him to desist from such dirty jobs as it wont take him far.

“When the unfortunate news of the brutal assassination of Iniubong Umoren filtered in, we knew that political merchants will use Inibehe and his ilks to score cheap political capitals. This is not a surprise since it has been a stock in trade for Inibehe Effiong who earns his living from media blackmail to suit his paymasters”.

On the renovation of the Governor’s lodge in Lagos which has been criticized by Inibehe, the group said, “this same Inibehe Effiong left Uyo to Lagos, rented an office apartment and is doing business there.

“He should give up insulting the memory of the late Iniubong, who would have finished school two years ago, if the APC government that Inibehe and co foisted on this country had been more sensitive to the plight of university lecturers and averted the one year strike that contributed in frustrating people like Iniubong who were in a hurry to move on in life”, the group added.
