#RiversRerun: Wike, Amaechi clash at police station

20 March 2016, 15:00

Port Harcourt - Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State on Sunday morning physically confronted former Governor of the state and Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi for allegedly plotting to hijack the result sheet of Ward 10, Port Harcourt Constituency II.

The incident happened at Mile I Police Station in Port Harcourt.

An ad hoc staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), who lectures at the University of Port Harcourt, had absconded with the election result sheet, and other voting materials for Ward 10 since Saturday.

The DPO of Mkpolu Police Station, who was in charge of security during voting in the area, had raised an alarm over the INEC’s staff disappearance, until she surfaced at the Mile I Police Station.

Minutes after the INEC ad-hoc staff surfaced at the police station, Amaechi, the DG of NIMASA, Dakuku Peterside and acting Managing Director of NDDC, Ibim Semenitari arrived the political station.

Wike few minutes after Amaechi’s arrival stormed the station and confronted the minister, wanting to know what he and his team were doing at the station.

He also asked Peterside and Semenitari why they chose to be in Port Harcourt and at the police station when they were supposed to be in their respective LGAs.
