The APC in a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Monday by its state chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, further alleged that the executive director of the non-governmental organisation, Livingstone Wechie met the governor in a meeting where the publication was further fine tuned and the sum of N10 million handed over to the group to ensure wider spread of the publication.

The statement reads in part, “The Rivers State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has uncovered a plot by Governor Nyesom Wike to smear, intimidate and blackmail the President of the Court of Appeal, Hon. Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa and other Appeal Court Justices using the so-called Integrity Group led by one Livingstone Wechie and his cohorts.

“The APC wishes to reveal that members of the Integrity Friends for Truth and Peace Initiative, also known as Integrity Group were activated by Governor Nyesom Wike to draft and make a publication that will effectively intimidate and blackmail Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa and others over the pending Ojukaye Flag-Amachree matter in court.”
