Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has come under fire for threatening to kill members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) causing mayhem in the state.
Speaking during the commissioning of some projects in Ahoada community on Wednesday, Wike had threatened the outlawed group and criminals killing people and security operatives in the state.
The governor boasted that the remains of the criminals will be eaten by vultures and their parents will never bury or see them again.
However, many Nigerians have taken to their social media page to express their displeasure over the comment made by the governor, accusing him of planning extra-judicial killings.
See some of the reactions below:
Wike is too unrefined for a lawyer. He has some measure of dictatorship embedded in him.
This should be uncharacteristic of a democratic governor.

Except for being a little more circumspect, isn’t this the way a government that is interested in the protection of lives and property should sound? Aren’t we all supposed to stand to condemn anyone killing and destroying property? Well done Wike! https://t.co/0uQlkZdAEO

Wike chats shit most times. Imagine talking about killing people and their parents won't find them. There surely must be consequences for Politicians threatening people

I said this before and I’ll say it again, Gov Wike just doesn’t cut it right in a Democratic setting and as a lawyer. When we see what is wrong,let’s call it out before the same thing consumes us.
Another low 👎. https://t.co/UQUyd1xnWE

Wike is a lawyer who does not respect the law.
He has the garnishing of a dictator.
