The Rivers State Government has reacted to a report making the rounds that the son of Governor, Nyesom Wike was shot dead in the US Today.
Commissioner for Information and Communication, Chris Finebone in a statement described the report as false.
He called on the public to disregard the report, adding that the governor does not have a son in the United States.
Part of his statement reads,
“This is a big lie by evil people. For the avoidance of doubt, Gov. Nyesom Wike has no son or child in the US. By the special grace of God, the governor’s children are safe and doing well where they are.
“This satanic rumour is yet another concoction by wicked people in their insidious quest to blackmail and tarnish the image of Gov. Wike. There is absolutely no truth in this cheap blackmail.
“The public should disregard and throw it into the trash can where it belongs.”
