Attempt On Life Of Gov Wike By Security Operatives, A Sacrilege – PDP


The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has

described as most sacrilegious, the attempt by security operatives of the

Department of State Services (DSS) and policemen to shoot the State

Governor, Chief Barr Nyesom Wike for intervening in the illegal move to

abduct a Federal High Court judge serving in the State in the early hours

of Saturday, October 8, 2016 .
A statement by the State chairman of the Party, Bro Felix Obuah and signed

by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam said the

unruly behavior of the overzealous security operatives is the worst of its

kind in the history of Nigeria and is a cause for concern.

Though the target is to find reason to declare a state of emergency in the

State, Bro Obuah noted, the President, the National Assembly members,

Judicial Officers, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and all relevant

authorities and stakeholders should be put on notice on these acts of

recklessness against Rivers State as injury to one is injury to all.

There is no doubt that the Rivers State experience is exceptional and the

democratic abuse bysecurity agencies and their political paymasters is

aimed at testing the mindset of the people and if left to stand will

definitely go round and translate into a national malaise, the State PDP

chairman lamented.
According to him it's unheard of anywhere in the world where legally

constituted authorities like the DSS and the Police will break into the

residence of a legitimate federal judicial officer of the status of a

judge for the purpose of arrest in the wee hours of the day, citingorder

from above as their reason.
“This is an act of brigandage and roguery, worse still when a serving

governor intervened, same security agents cocked their guns against the

State Chief Executive/Security Officer in the presence of the State Police

Commissioner and Director of DSS. This, though real is most unbelievable”.

The State PDP chairman however appealed to Rivers people to remain calm in

the face of the unprovoked attack and siege being perpetuated by those

opposed to peace in the State so that they can have their way and continue

with their exploitation underdevelopment of Rivers State.

“We are happy and grateful God is on our side. Each time they come up with

a new strategy to cause mayhem they end up hitting the air because even

the gods of the land abhor their intentions.
Nonetheless, this particular sacrilege of attempting to shoot our Governor

will never be taken kindly,” Bro Obuah said.
