The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has called on the Inspector General of Police to arrest and prosecute one of the notorious aides of the outgoing Governor of the State and a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr. Tony Okocha over the attack on the immediate past Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Council, Hon Prince Timothy Nsirim, which has led to his hospitalization.

The PDP describes the attack and manhandling of the Elder statesman and a stalwart of the party, Hon Prince Timothy as criminal, barbaric and animalistic.

The party accuses the Chief of Staff to the outgoing Governor of Rivers State, Mr Tony Okocha of ordering his thugs and APC supporters to attack Prince Nsirim at the venue of a function he was invited to attend by Rukpakani youths in Rumueme, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the State.

Prince Nsirim who was also physically battered by Mr Tony Okocha, sustained major injuries all over his body and had his clothes torn to shreds.

The PDP therefore, calls on the Inspector General of Police, IG and the Rivers Commissioner of Police, CP to arrest and prosecute Mr Tony Okocha.

The party also describes Mr Tony Okocha as lawless, blood thirsty and one if not tamed, would cause crisis in Rivers State, ahead of the general elections.
