ALLEGATION OF KILLING OVER 30 APC MEMBERS IN RIVERS: PDP Denies allegation
The attention of the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been drawn to claims by the Special Adviser Media to the Chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State, Eze Chukwuemeka Eze that over 30 members of his party had been killed in the state and that the killings were masterminded by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
The State Chairman of the PDP, Bro Felix Obuah in a statement by his Special Adviser, Media, Jerry Needam described the allegation as the height of falsehood and deliberate attempt to denigrate the PDP. The PDP declares that the allegation is spurious, mischievous, malicious and a fragmentation of Eze's evil imaginations, adding that it is part of APC's sustained effort at causing crisis in the state.. The party says it was not surprised at this allegation, especially coming from no less a person than Eze Chukwuemeka Eze who has acquired reputation for spreading false information and making unguided attacks against the PDP.
The PDP challenges Mr. Eze and the APC to substantiate their claim by revealing the identities of the purported killed members of the APC, as well as telling the public when and where they were killed. PDP further challenged the APC to tell the world the names of the Local Government Areas, towns and wards of the over 30 persons claimed to have been killed.
PDP notes that the same Eze Chukwuemeka Eze had in 2013 claimed that police in Rivers State killed 5 innocent children during a Save Rivers Movement rally, at Rumuola, a claim he (Eze) failed to substantiate eventually.
Consequently, the PDP is calling on the Inspector General of Police as well as the Rivers State Commissioner of Police to invite Eze Chukwuemeka Eze for questioning so he can tell the world all he knows about the alleged killings.

State PDP Chairman.
