Okowa is believed to be a major contender in the race to succeed Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan in the 2015   gubernatorial race in Delta State.

Okowa,  while briefing the press yesterday in Asaba, the Delta State capital, said some political foes  have concluded plans to eliminate him , through ‘attacks  and malicious  allegations’, which he said “stems  from the fact  that there is  a governorship  election in a few months  time”  as they are stopping at nothing to stop him.

He therefore called on President Goodluck Jonathan and the Inspector- General of Police , Mohammed Abubakar  to offer him the necessary protection against those he alleged were bent of getting  rid of  him.
Okowa is also asking  the Delta State High  court to give him  the necessary  protection,  through writ of summons to restrain one Mr. John Agbo,  of Alishime road , Agbor-obi, in Ika South local government area and his  agents  from further carrying out threat on his life and writing, printing, or circulating libellous materials against  him.

Okowa who is  the immediate past  Delta State SSG  , alleged that  his detractors have employed series of  campaigns of calumny, including newspaper publication to spread falsehood against his  personality in order not  to only ridicule him,  but  lower his estimation  in the eyes of the public.

Okowa who spoke through his lawyer, Mr Peter Mrakpor , alleged that one of such antics employed was his alleged involvement in the murder of one Arthur Agbe, a youth in 2003  from Agbor , in Ika South local government area.
