The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress has condemned the plot to link Governor Rotimi Amaechi with a murder case in the accident involving the Majority Leader of the state House of Assembly, Hon. Lloyd that resulted in the death of Police Sergeant Urang Obediah and one Kingsley Ejeuo, a staunch PDP member in Emohua LGA.
Rivers State Interim State APC Chairman, Chief (Dr.) Davies Ibiamu Ikanya said in a statement issued on Sunday in the Rivers State capital, Port Harcourt that the party is shocked at the moves by CP Mbu to implicate Gov. Amaechi in the murder saga.
“As much as we feel sad over the death of these two Nigerians, we are shocked by the attempt by the State Commissioner of Police, CP Joseph Mbu and his promoters, to link Governor Amaechi with the accident that led to the said deaths.
“It is regrettable that CP Mbu, who is on a mission of destabilization in Rivers State, could go to the extent of trying to frame up a sitting Governor just to satisfy his masters in Abuja.
“Governor Amaechi has proven to all and sundry that he is a true democrat. It is not in his character to either spill the blood of any human being for any reason or to support any such action.
“As a Christian, Governor Amaechi believes in the sanctity of human life and would never encourage or support any such diabolical act.” “ He lamented
Dr. Ikanya condemned the unprofessional behavior of CP Mbu “for creating the impression that Governor Amaechi wanted to plot the escape of Hon. Lloyd from arrest by flying out with him in a non-existent private jet.”
According to him, “this is yet another proof that Mbu is yet to finish his untoward task in Rivers State and the earlier he is called to order the better for everyone.”
“The rejuvenated APC under Governor Amaechi’s dynamic leadership has moved swiftly to take over all the local governments in the state. In the new year, we shall further step up the apc-nization of Rivers State so as to ensure that the evil party called PDP never again comes close to the corridors of power in the state, whether at the state or local government level,” Dr. Ikanya said.
