Wike Is Been Protected From Prosecution Due To His Immunity As A Governor – Information Minister
Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has said the the immunity currently being enjoyed by Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike has saved him from prosecution over his allegations that the federal government was planning to killing him.
Recall Naija News reported that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike had informed Nigerians that the APC Federal Government is plotting to assassinate him in a crowd and claim accidental discharge.
“Intelligence report available to us as of this morning indicated that they are plotting to assassinate me in a crowd and claim it was an accidental discharge,” Wike had said.
“The level of conspiracy against Rivers state is unfortunate. Instead of focusing on governance, they focus on how to assassinate me or frame me up.”
Asked to respond to the allegation on Wednesday, Mohammed said: “As for the question about the allegation by the governor of Rivers that he has information that he will be assassinated by the federal government in a crowd. I think one of the beauties of being a governor is that you enjoy immunity from prosecution and arrest. Because, I remember a couple of years ago when I made similar allegations, I was invited to force headquarters.
