Wike Is Behind Burnt INEC Office – Rivers APC


Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has been accused by the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State of being the mastermind of Friday, July 22, 2016’s arson on Independent National Electoral Commission office in Bori.

In a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Saturday, July 23, 2016, by the state party chairman, Chief Davies Ikanya, the APC urged security agencies to hold the governor responsible for the arson.
INEC office in Bori, Khana Local Government Area of the state was gutted by fire on Friday, July 22, 2016.
The party alleged that the election umpire’s office was burnt down by hoodlums suspected to be the Peoples Democratic Party members.
It said Wike had on Thursday, July 21, 2016, publicly threatened INEC, its chairman, Ikanya, and Senator Magnus Abe, stating the governor had threatened to visit them “with fire.”
According to the statement, just less than 24 hours after the threat, INEC office in Senator Abe’s South-East Senatorial District Headquarters, Bori, was burnt down.
“This is typical of the saying that the witch cried last night and today, the child dies. Wike has, as usual, carried out his earlier threat to visit us with fire.
“We now know better what he meant. His boys burnt INEC office in Bori just because Bori is the senatorial headquarters of Rivers South-East where Sen. Magnus Abe hails from,” the APC said.
It alleged that Wike was encouraging killing, maiming and destruction of lives and properties for the sake of political power.
“We warned that whenever Wike resorts to throwing mud at innocent people and making unwholesome accusations, he must be up to his familiar sinister games; today, it has manifested in its fullness.
“Security agents should ignore his attempts to blame this heinous act on the APC or anyone else; it was obviously planned by Wike and clinically executed by his foot soldiers,” the statement added.
