PDP wants Amaechi, Peterside, others arrested

21 March 2016, 20:01

Port Harcourt - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, Senator  Magnus Abe and Dakuku Peterside  over Saturday’ s poll fiasco in Rivers State.

The party said the trio masterminded the violence, killings and various electoral malpractices during the Saturday rerun elections in some parts of the state.

The party in a statement by the Chairman of the Rivers State chapter of the party, Felix Obuah, also demanded the arrest and prosecution of Barry Mpigi for hijacking electoral materials in Tai LGA to his home town, Koroma, with the aid of the military.

The party said it is most disappointing and embarrassing that the APC chieftains preferred to act irresponsibly and undemocratically by engaging in electoral frauds and using the military to intimidate the electorate and INEC officials.

The party also condemned the involvement of the Army in the elections which heightened tension in the state.

The party said the involvement of the military emboldened the APC chieftains to carry out nefarious conducts during the exercise in the state, including disrespecting state authorities, court orders and rule of law.
