[EDITORIAL] Rivers PDP Raises Alarm Over Plot To Assassinate President Jonathan, Nyesom Wike

christian nwodo - Sunday, March 08, 2015


“We find this conspiracy most despicable and incomprehensible. We also note that the said conspiracy by itself is criminal in nature.
“Prior to this time and just to mention one out of several cases, the C4I had attempted to abduct and possibly eliminate a member of the PDP in Rivers State, Tonye Adoki Ayella. Mr. Ayella, who is the PDP’s candidate to represent Port Harcourt Constituency 2 in the Rivers State House of Assembly in the 2015 General Election, was saved from abduction and possible elimination by security men attached to Rt. Honourable Evans Bipi, the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly. This matter was reported to the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State Police Command, who has refused or neglected to investigate the matter.
“The leadership of the PDP in Rivers State has consistently also informed the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State Police Command of the consistent threats that C4I.
“In fact, we make bold to say that C4I is now a parallel police force in Rivers State that can conveniently be called the “Rivers State Police Force” since by their conduct and operation C4I is obviously independent of the command and control of the Rivers State Police Command. We categorically state that the PDP in Rivers State has totally lost confidence in the C4I.
Okah therefore demanded the following:
– ”the immediate investigation by the Inspector General of this scandalous plot to discredit the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Chief Nyesom Wike CON, particularly the involvement of C4I, a security agency in the conspiracy”
– “immediate disbanding of the said C4I, the debriefing of its members and their reposting out of Rivers State “ and “ prosecution of all C4I personnel involved in the nefarious plot which insofar as it concerns the President is treason.”
– “the Inspector General of Police to ensure that this Israeli trained special unit, the C4I, is not used any further by the APC or any other political party for that matter” The party said “It is rather incomprehensible and shameful that a special Police Squad created and funded by the Rivers State Government to contain the menace of Kidnapping in Rivers State is now the very organisation that the Government of Rivers State would be using for acts of abduction, kidnapping, planned assassinations, and political chicanery.”
