The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has warned that no evil must befall Governor Nyesom Wike in Edo State.
This position was made known by Ambassador Akawor Desmond, Chairman PDP Rivers State in a statement on Friday evening where he called the attention of the Police IG, Mohammed Adamu to some political developments in Edo State.
As earlier reported by Naija News, about 300 policemen have reportedly laid siege on the hotel where Governor Wike is lodging in Benin the Edo State capital.
Wike is the Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo Governorship election scheduled for Saturday, 19th September 2020.
Reacting to the report of the Police siege, Desmond said it is unfair for APC governors on similar assignments for their parties in Edo State to be walking freely while their PDP counterparts are being harassed by security operatives.
He said: “Governor Ganduje and Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State are all in Benin, Edo State carrying out their assignment for the APC without any molestation or intimidation.”
“And in a breach of the pledge they made security agencies have decided to harass and intimidate Governor Wike who has not done any wrong.”
“Rivers People Warn that we Shall hold the IGP responsible for anything that happens to our Governor.”
