Most Of The People On This Governor Wike List Of People To Be Arrested Are Members Of The SDP—Abe

Social Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate Magnus Abe challenged Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike over his claim of wanting 28 supporters of opposition parties in the state, noting that Wike has no constitutional authority to declare anyone wanted.

Abe was speaking at Rivers State Police Headquarters today as he accompanied APC gubernatorial candidates Tonye Cole, the African Democratic Congress, Tonte Ibraye, the Accord Party, and Police Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs, who led the line. Hundreds of their supporters in Rivers State, during a protest against the Rivers State Police Headquarters, were allegedly threatened by the government of the state.

It should be recalled that Wike, on Thursday's statewide broadcast, announced the wanted list of 28 people opposed to the People's Democratic Party, PDP.

Speaking in Port Harcourt, Prime Minister Abe said only the police have the power to do so, and the governor has no authority.


Abe regrets that his supporters, including a member of the diaspora who has returned home to take part in polls among those declared wanted, have wondered what has happened. happened to alleged members of the ruling party, who were allegedly involved in explosions in the homes and businesses of prominent figures in the state. Abe said:

“I wanted to draw attention to a few highlights that prompted me to join this effort. Last night, the governor of Rivers performed. In this program, he named a number of people to be arrested and ordered the police to declare their wanted status, arrest them, and prosecute them immediately.

“Most of the people on this Governor Wike list of people to be arrested are simply people who have campaigned for other political parties." Many of them are members of the SDP, including a Nigerian citizen who has just come to the country just to run for office. Because he had posted billboards and campaigned for the SDP, his name was included on the list of people who should be arrested.

“The people of Rivers taking note that we are in this situation is a useful lesson. Explosives were thrown into the homes of Rivers' famous sons. One of them is the case of a young man who bombed Good Jaja's house. He was shot there, and his Task Force ID and GDI were found, so he became known. As of today, the police refuse to say anything about it. He was allowed to bleed to death. None of his colleagues or accomplices were arrested. No one has been declared wanted.

“This kind of policy will only cause insecurity." The governor, Wike, does not have the constitutional right to declare any citizen wanted.
