Lagos - Outgoing Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Amaechi, said the commission of enquiry his government had set up would ensure security personnel accounted for the alleged human rights violations in recent months.
The committee will probe alleged security forces’ involvement in the violence that characterised the run-up to the polls conducted on March 28.
“We have agreed to set up a commission of enquiry to investigate all the killings so far. So, all those people who killed, we shall punish them.
Whether they like it or not, they must account for everybody they killed,” Amaechi told supporters of his All Progressives Congress (APC) in Emohua.
He urged the people to come out in numbers to participate at the weekend poll.

“Next Saturday, I expect everybody to come out and vote. There will be no harassment by police again. There will be no harassment by the army again.”
Meanwhile, said the Muhammadu Buhari’s administration will usher people-oriented policies, programmes and projects, and genuine democratic ideals aimed at bringing transformation.
“It is crucial that we all must come out to vote this time around, so that we can stop the PDP from writing election results for us. You cannot seat at home and win election, so, all of us must come out and vote for APC.
APC party agents, this time around must take their duties seriously.”
