Lagos - The People's Democratic Party (PDP) expressed concern at the spate of hostilities across the Rivers State, blaming it on the amnesty Governor Rotimi Amaechi instituted.
The Rivers State Chapter of the ruling party said the move had culminated in the release of some "undesirable elements."

Regretting the resurgence of criminal activities, the party cited the recent invasion of Obagi, Ede Obite, Egi town, Obieze, Obimiri and Akabuka all in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni local government area, which has reportedly claimed over 15 lives.
The party also drew attention to renewed cult clashes, kidnappings and indiscriminate killings in parts of Ogoni including Baen, Kpean, Wiiyaakara, Kaani, Kpaa and Okwali, which have also claimed unspecified number of casualties.
"The Party still insists the hoodlums and bandits behind all this mayhem cannot be different from those unjustly set free by the State Government understandably to use them for election fraud in 2015," PDP stated.
The party however enjoined all youths in the State to shun all acts capable of disrupting the peace and development in the state.
