How Amaechi, APC recruited Army, Police to kill Rivers people – Wike


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has declared that the Rivers State Government will pursue justice for all those allegedly murdered in cold blood by soldiers of the Nigerian Army recruited by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to unleash mayhem on PDP members in Abonnema and other towns during Presidential and National Assembly elections.

Addressing journalists on Sunday at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Governor Wike said that all those involved in the cold blooded murder of innocent Rivers people to feather the Presidential ambition of their benefactor will not go unpunished.

Wike particularly berated the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 6 Division of the Nigerian Army, Major General Jamil Sarham and the Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad (FSARs) Akin Fakorede for their ugly roles in the murder of Rivers people during the elections.

He said: “Let it be known that those who masterminded the murderous assault on Abonnema and other communities in Rivers State last Saturday have bloodstains on their hands, for which they are all answerable before the Almighty God.

“I wish to assure all and sundry that we shall as a government pursue justice for the families of the victims against the perpetrators of the mayhem, killings and destructions in Abonema, Buguma, Degema and other places no matter how powerful they may seem and how long it may take”.

Wike called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately direct the army to pull out of Abonnema, so that the people can resume their normal lives.

“I call on Mr. President to please, in the name of God direct the army to withdraw the occupation and siege on Abonnema and Bonny communities so that the people can go about with their normal lives”, he said.

He wondered why the Minister of Transportation would allegedly connive with the Nigerian Army to spill the blood of Rivers people just for the purpose of political relevance.

“But, like all well meaning Nigerians, I dare to ask: does the ambition of Mr. President to cling on to power warrant the gruesome and coldblooded murder of innocent souls in Rivers State by the Minister of Transportation and his armed gangs?

“Must the Minister of Transportation shed innocent blood, desecrate the land of Abonnema and humiliate our people in pursuit of the re-election of our President?

“Are the people Abonnema and indeed, kalabari happy with the occupation of their land and the way it was turned to a minefield of killings and destruction by the army on account of someone’s ambition to remain relevant in national politics and hopefully be re-appointed?” he said.
