Rivers State Governor, NYESOM WIKE has said that his administration and people of the state would not be a party to the police probe of the December 10 rerun election, described such investigation as spurious.
The Inspector-General of Police had set up an investigative panel to investigate developments before and during the polls, including an alleged threatening of officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission by the state governor.
But WIKE, who spoke at a victory thanksgiving mass of the Peoples Democratic Party in Port Harcourt, said the probe on the rerun election had a predetermined goal to indict the PDP and commence their politically motivated prosecution.
The Governor said “The police cannot deliberately murder Rivers people in cold blood and turn around to investigate. We are not a party to their so-called panel. We have passed that stage and we cannot fall into the trap of a panel of inquiry”.
Governor NYESOM WIKE wondered why the police would claim it wanted to investigate issues surrounding the Rivers rerun elections when it is one of the interested parties involved in the attempt to subvert the will of the people.
The Police panel headed by a Deputy Commissioner of Police will this week write telecommunication firms for the call data of Governor NYESOM WIKE over the Rivers Legislative re-run.
