Frank has called on the federal government to beef up security and adequately protect the former Vice President.

He also called on the international community to set their sight on the development, which is coming at a time when the presidential election tribunal has reached the penultimate session where it has been confirmed that he (Atiku) won 21 States out of 36 as stipulated in an INEC document.

Frank said:

“to take notice, that only recently the INEC confirmed in the PEPT on he winning in 21 states and therefore sending shock waves to the opposition and current government on the possibility of a rerun election.

“Perhaps this grand plot is being sponsored by top opposition politicians to assassinate the former VP in a bid to cause chaos and deny him any chance of retrieving his stolen mandate. We are therefore circumspect in this regard.”
