APC reveals death toll of Rivers violence

09 March 2016, 20:31

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) alleged 60 members of the party had been killed in the Rivers State during the past month.

These are some victims of the violence preceding the forthcoming National and State Assembly elections in the state.

The People’s Democratic Party PDP), a ruling party in the state, has been accused of perpetrating the violence.

It has denied the allegations.

Nonetheless, Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, the spokesperson of APC Rivers Chairman, Davies Ikanya, said unfortunately members of PDP were heeding the call by Governor Nyesom Wike to “burn alive” members of the opposition and other electoral personnel who stood on their way to victory in the forthcoming rerun elections.

“In fact, in the last one month, over 60 APC members have been killed in different parts of Rivers State,” said Eze.

Rivers APC called on the relevant security agencies to act investigate.

“…because if 100 souls could be sacrificed in order to install him as Governor of Rivers State, he wouldn’t mind if thousands of Rivers State people are sacrificed to enable him install his stooges as National and State lawmakers.”

Polls are scheduled for March 19.
