Rivers crisis: Group seeks Wike’s arrest, prosecution

By  | 
The Rivers Peoples’ Forum (RPF) has restated
its call for the immediate arrest and
prosecution of Minister of State for Education,
Nyesom Wike over his comments in Port
Harcourt weekend, which they say is dangerous
to democracy in the country and threatens the peace and security of Rivers State and could
lead to a breakdown of law and order in the
State, if the Minister is not checked. Wike on Saturday last week, at an event in Port
Harcourt had said that, “for those who think
that they can destroy Obio-Akpor (Local
Govern-ment Council), we will make life
uncomfortable for them. We will make sure
they will not sleep again. When they are sleeping, they will not sleep with their two eyes
closed. One eye will be open because they
know there is danger.” Wike was allegedly referring to the former
Chairman and Councilors of Obio-Akpor Local
Government Area who were suspended by the
Rivers State House of Assembly for the House
to carry out investigations of monumental
fraud and corruption against them. RPF in a statement signed by its President,
Charles Bekwele described the comments of
Wike as a direct threat to the good people of
Rivers State, that can lead to a breach of peace
and security, and security agencies must now
take steps to curtail the excesses of Nyesom Wike. “First, Obio-Akpor Council was not destroyed.
Its former Council Chairman Timothy Nsirim
and Councilors were only suspended by the
Rivers State House of Assembly to enable the
House investigate allegations of monumental
fraud and corruption against them. And the State Assembly had repeatedly said they would
be reinstated if they are not found guilty at the
end of the investigations. And we must also
bear in mind that it is constitutionally the
function of the State legislators to oversee,
supervise and check the excesses of local councils” These legislators were elected by Rivers
people to represent them in the Assembly. This
also means that whatever action they take in
the House(including the suspension) was taken
by Rivers people since we voted for them and
gave them our mandate to represent us in the Assembly. This then translates to the fact that
the junior minister’s threat is a direct threat to
the good people of Rivers State.” “Nyesom Wike must be arrested and
prosecuted now for threatening the lives of
Rivers people, for threatening the peace and
security of Rivers State. As a matter of fact, his
comments are dangerous to our democracy,
Wike is a danger to our democracy. Comments like that can easily lead to a breach of peace in
the state. The Inspector General of Police, the
Director-General, State Security Service(SSS)
must act now to arrest and prosecute Wike for
threatening the peace and security of the
State. His excesses must be curtail, Rivers people have had enough of Wike’s
shenanigans.”
