Abuja - The Rivers State Chapter of the All
Progressives Congress (APC) has dedicated its recent success at the Courts of
Appeal to party supporters killed during the run-up to the governorship
Among the victims recognised is prominent supporter,
Chief Christopher Adube.
Adube, his three children, younger brother were allegedly
murdered in the late chief’s home in April.
“We dedicate these victories to Police Corporal Ifeanyi
Okorie killed when the APC Governorship Campaign Team was attacked at Okrika
and close to 100 others killed before, during and after the 2015 elections in
Rivers State,” said APC Rivers spokesman, Chris Finebone, as Adube was interred
this past weekend.
Violence, largely blamed on the People’s Democratic Party
(PDP), whose candidate Nyesom Wike won the poll, marred the poll.
The Court of Appeal recently nullified the election of
Wike as well as some legislators.

On Friday, the Appeal Courts have dispossessed the PDP of
all three Senatorial and 12 House of Representative seats over irregularities.
“We acknowledge the fact that despite being slow and
cautious, the wheel of justice has started its tortuous journey and will not
stop until those behind the entire debacle that took place in Rivers State
either as direct killers or manipulators of the electoral process are held to
account by the law of the land,” said Finebone.
“Today, they may be free and dancing on the graves of
those they killed but surely they have two major prices to pay – the price
before the law here on earth and that before God Almighty hereafter, added the
Finebone said APC would like to thank its supports for
their steadfastness and “continually rising above the blood-tainted filthy
lucre those with your stolen mandates dangle before some of you.”
“The APC urges you to continue to damn Satan and his
temptation for a new day is only around the corner,” said Finebone.
