Rivers State All Progressives Congress (APC) has strongly condemned an alleged attempt to assassinate Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, erstwhile Governor of Rivers State and current Minister of Transportation, “by Governor Nyesom Wike and his agents.”
It described the alleged attempt as “heinous, evil, despicable and madness taken too far.” “Amaechi, who was on official tour to Rivers State, was on 11th November, 2017 attacked to be assassinated on the orders of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State,” the party said last night, quoting a “report made available to us by Prince Tonye Princewill, an associate to Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi who happened to be in the same car with the Minister.”
A statement signed by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, the SSA Media and Public Affairs Consultant to APC Rivers State Chairman, Dr Ibiamu Davies Ikanya, added that “after the failed attempt to kill the Minister, his escort Team was physically assaulted by the CSO Government House, SP Promise Wosu, and Governor Wike along Trans Amadi Road, Port Harcourt, with the FSARS operatives on the Minister’s convoy dislodged and forcefully disposed off of one of their AK 47 Rifles.”
“This is a dangerous trend which if not nipped to the bud and arrested may jeopardise the current peace pervading the Niger Delta region at the moment,” the statement said.
“The party in this regard, requests for the immediate arrest and prosecution of SP Promise Wosu and all his men before Gov Wike succeeds to turn Rivers State into a theatre of unwarranted war zone only obtainable during the Omehia’s era when Port Harcourt was rated as the most risky place in the world.
“Finally, the party asked, must the Federal Government continue to play with kid’s glove with such a man like Wike, who is a danger to the unity and peace of this nation until he plunges this nation into a monumental disaster?”
