APC links Wike to Niger Delta Avengers violence

16 May 2016, 09:08Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed as hypocritical Governor Nyesom Wike’s condemnation of oil infrastructure vandalism in the region.

APC state chairman, Davies Ikanya, said this was because of the governor’s antecedent in “inciting young people against the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government in the night and calling for understanding in the day.”

“Nigerians should take the condemnation by Nyesom Wike as a mere smokescreen to hide the various anti-FG activities the governor has surreptitiously embarked upon in the past such as his secret support for Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) in Rivers State.”

Speaking in Port Harcourt, Ikanya claimed they had records of Wike’s activities concerning his sponsorship of IPOB activities in Rivers State.

Ikanya further alleged the demands of the so-called Niger Delta Avengers incorporated IPOB agenda.

“This means that there is a strong nexus between the promoters of Biafra and miscreants blowing up oil installations in the creeks of the Niger Delta,” said Ikanya.

“We expect Wike to tell the world the truth about what he knows concerning the present insecurity and bombing of oil installations in the Niger Delta instead of engaging in barefaced hypocrisy,” Ikanya charged.

He thus called on Rivers people and Nigerians to ignore the “several hypocritical antics” of Wike and hold the governor responsible for all the killings and insecurity in Rivers in particular and the resurgence of insecurity and vandalism in the Niger Delta in general.
