PDP Challenges Gov Amaechi’s Panel of Inquiry in Court

PDP Challenges Gov Amaechi’s Panel of Inquiry in Court

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has instituted a suit at the federal high court in Port Harcourt challenging the setting up of a panel of inquiry by Governor Chibuike Amaechi to investigate the politically motivated violence and killings for and during the just concluded general elections in the state.

The PDP in a suit said governor Amaechi is not qualified to set up a commission of inquiry having been partisan and personally involved in the subject matter of the proposed inquiry of which he accused the PDP of masterminding.

The PDP said that the subject matter of inquiry which relates to allegations of politically motivated killings and violence against persons and property in the state are criminal in nature which only the police and the judiciary has the powers to investigate.

The PDP also claimed that those appointed as members of the inquiry were known loyalists of the governor and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
