Governor Nyesom Wike

The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has alleged that over 300 policemen has laid siege to the hotel where Governor Nyesom Wike is lodging in Benin, while on assignment for the Edo election.

This was disclosed in a tweet by the Chairman of Rivers State party, Akawor Desmond, on Friday September 18.

Desmond said the PDP will hold the Inspector-General of Police responsible if anything happened to the governor.

“The attention of the entire people of Rivers State has been drawn to the siege laid at the hotel where the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, is lodging while on official assignment in Benin, Edo State.

“Recall that Governor Wike was appointed Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo governorship election; this is same position Governor Ganduje of Kano State occupies for his party, the APC.

“Ganduje and Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State are all in Benin carrying out their assignment for the APC without any molestation or intimidation. In breach of the pledge they made, security agencies have decided to harass and intimidate Governor Wike who has not done any wrong.

“May I on behalf of the entire Rivers people warn that we shall hold the IGP responsible for anything that happens to our governor.”
