Wike: I Did not Hire Ex-Militant to Kill Rivers People

Wike Denies Hiring Ex-Militant to Kill Rivers People
Following allegation by Rivers State Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, that the governor-elect, Barr. Nyesom Wike, conspired with an ex-militant to kill innocent people of the state in order to win the governorship election, Wike denied the allegation.

The allegation was made on Tuesday, when Amaechi spoke at a public lecture to mark his 50th birthday anniversary in Port Harcourt.
He said that Wike hired a former militant leader in the Niger Delta region, to mastermind the killing of innocent people of the state during the just concluded general elections.

The governor-elect, has however, denied it in a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.
He said he had never killed anybody or conspired with any other person whatsoever to kill any person, pointing out that in all his political pursuits, killing of anybody has never and will never form part of his strategy to win any election.

The statement, which was signed by the chairman, Media and Publicity Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party Campaign Organisation (PDPCO) in the state, Barrister Emma Okah, said Wike did not need to kill anybody to win the 2015 general elections in the state and wondered why Amaechi who is the chief security officer of the state has kept quiet or refused to press criminal charges against him until Wike is about to be sworn in as governor of Rivers State.

He said that the governor-elect had no immunity and wondered why Amaechi did not prosecute him or anybody having accused him of such a heinous crime.

“It is shameful for a man to speak loosely like a lunatic the way Amaechi does and we urge him to seek spiritual and medical attention; no matter how much distractions he causes, he must account for his misdeeds and looting of Rivers State during his tenure as governor,” Okah said.
