Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has alleged that 600 SARS policemen have been distributed to APC leaders for the indiscriminate arrests of PDP supporters, also adding that he will release a video proof of a plot to rig the forthcoming re-run election in the state.
According to him, the footage shows the plans of the Rivers State Police Commissioner and politicians to rig December 10 re-run elections.
He disclosed this while flagging off the rehabilitation of a General Hospital in Abonnema in Akuku-Toru Local Government Area of the state on Monday, November 28.
Wike said that the video will be released via various media platforms “to expose the extreme rigging desires of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with the backing of the police and other security agencies.”
He alleged that 600 policemen working with the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in the state have already been distributed by the Police Commissioner to prominent leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in each local government for the indiscriminate arrests of supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP).
“We are now in possession of the DVD of how the Police Commissioner and some politicians were planning on how to rig the forthcoming Legislative re-run elections in Rivers State.
“We Are Ahead Of Them.
“At the appropriate time, we shall release the materials for Nigerians to understand the depth of the electoral fraud being perpetrated by INEC and Police.
“For the security of this all-important audio-visual material, we have mass produced them and kept them at different locations. Nigerians are entitled to know the truth about the unfortunate rigging machine.
“Now that we have caught them on tape, this will shake the world. Rivers State is not like other states where you can plot and execute easy rigging plans.
“We are ahead of them by 50 steps. If they take one step, we take 50. On behalf of our people, we shall continue to monitor these persons who are trying to steal the mandate of our people.”
He urged the people of Rivers state to continue to support the PDP and vote all PDP candidates during the re-run elections.
