RIVERS STATE GOVERNMENT CONDEMNS ATTACKS ON DR PETER ODILI AND HIS FAMILY 

The Rivers State Executive Council at its meeting held on Wednesday 19th February,  2020 at the Government House,  Port Harcourt reviewed the  recent attacks  on the residence of the Former Governor of Rivers State,  Dr Peter Odili as a result of the Supreme Court judgment that nullified  the election of David Lyon as Governor of Bayelsa State and resolved as follows:
1. That the Rivers State Executive Council observed that the Federal Government seems not to show interest in the sponsored threats to the lives of Dr Peter Odili and members of his family.
2.  That the Rivers State Executive Council condemns the barricading of the residence of Dr Peter  Odili  at Maitama, Abuja by sponsored thugs of the All Progressives  Congress (APC) .
3. That the Rivers State Executive Council wondered why Dr Peter Odili’s family should be singled out for the unwarranted attack,  when the judgment that ousted David Lyon as Governor of Bayelsa State was a unanimous decision of a five-member  panel of Supreme Court Justices.
4.That the Rivers State Executive Council warns the Minister of State for Petroleum,  Chief Timipre Sylva and the National Chairman of APC,  Adams Oshiomhole and their hired agents to desist from the sponsorship of violent attacks against Dr Peter Odili and members of his family.
5. That the Rivers State Government will hold Timipre  Sylva and Adams Oshiomhole responsible if anything happens to Dr Peter Odili and members  of  his family.
6. That the Rivers State Executive Council noted that in the past Rivers State suffered unfavourable Judicial Pronouncements and never resorted to self help as being promoted by APC Leaders in the case of Bayelsa State.
7.That the Rivers State Government will employ all legal means to protect Dr Peter  Odili and members  of his family.
8. That the Rivers  State Government will protect Rivers State Indigenes  who are serving Federal and State  Judicial officers .
9. That the Rivers State Government warns that should this harassment  and intimidation  continue,  it will have no alternative  than to retaliate.
10. That the Rivers State Government will defend the lives and property of Rivers people at all times.
11. Enough is enough.
