Rivers State Government has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State of masterminding the shooting of innocent PDP members who were having a meeting at Ipo in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State today 14th November, 2018.
Gunmen suspected to be APC supporters opened fire at PDP members who were holding a meeting, critically wounding scores of them while one is extremely critical.
A statement issued by the Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communications Barr Emma Okah said this unprovoked violence and attack on these innocent persons will not be accepted by the State.
RSG condemns this situation in all ramifications and calls on the Police and other security agencies to fish out these cowards and bring them to book.
Meanwhile, the statement appeals to PDP members in the State to remain calm and avoid any reprisal action as two wrongs do not make a right.
Hon Commissioner for Information and Communications
