The Atiku/Okowa Campaign Council says Rivers State has witnessed the highest incidents of violence more than terror-ravaged communities in Somalia.
Phrank Shuaibu, media aide to Atiku Abubakar who made this known in a statement yesterday, said Rivers had become the most volatile state during elections since Wike began running for office.
He alleged that Wike had even confessed to killing people during a leaked telephone conversation with then Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State after the Rivers rerun in 2016.
He called on security agencies to give Special attention to Rivers State by deploying additional manpower to boost security during elections.
Part of his statement reads,
“Even during the 2019 election, Rivers State witnessed the highest incidents of violence. This time again, Rivers has witnessed more violence than terror-ravaged communities in Somalia.
“There was even a bomb explosion at an APC rally where Mr. Tonye Cole accused Wike of being the mastermind. It is obvious that Wike, who talks like a bus conductor, is willing to bring the state to its knees.
Atiku’s aide called on the Nigeria Police Force, the military and other agencies of government to give special attention to Rivers State by deploying additional boots on the ground that will boost the security of Rivers State during and after elections.
“Wike has made it difficult for anyone he doesn’t like to campaign in the state. If people cannot campaign, it is unlikely that he will allow them to vote. For this reason, we call on the military and the police to send additional men on the ground in Rivers State to secure this election.
