Police have withdrawn my CSO, Wike cries out

06 December 2016, 10:43

Rivers - Ahead of the legislative rerun in the Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike has raised the alarm that his Chief Security Officer has been withdrawn, Punch reports.

Wike said his CSO was withdrawn on Monday alongside several other policemen from Government House, Port Harcourt.

The governor added that the Police High Command on Monday effected the transfer of 500 senior and junior police officers from the state.

He spoke at Khana Local Government Area when he led the Peoples Democratic Party candidates to campaign at Babbe, Ken Khana and Nyor Khana districts.

Wike, who claimed that the police were partisan and plotting to compromise his security, added that he was looking up to God and the youths to protect him.

“Does the Inspector-General of Police vote in Rivers State? The APC can take the IG. For me, I will remain with the people,” Wike said.

He charged youths in areas where elections would hold to monitor the results from polling units to the collation centres, adding that they must resist anyone trying to smuggle in cooked results.

The governor declared Wednesday to Friday as fasting days for the December 10 the rerun elections would hold and urged the people of the state to use the three days to pray for peaceful and credible elections.

The Rivers Government earlier declared a three-day fasting to seek God’s intervention for peace and order in the state, ahead of the Dec. 10 rerun elections according to News24.
