Rival parties in new spat over Rivers poll violence

09 December 2015, 08:47Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The Rivers State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has lambasted a regional chairman of the rival All Progressives Congress (APC) for claiming knowledge of some perpetrators of the killings that characterized the run-up to the governorship election.

Davies Ikanya, the state chairman of the APC, while addressing media on APC's recent Black Monday protest in Port Harcourt, reportedly admitted knowing the killers of some of the victims he claimed lost their lives during the general elections held in the region earlier this year.

It is reported Ikanya admitted knowing the killers of one Christopher Adugbe, his two children and a driver at the height of the tensions.

State chairman of the PDP, Felix Obuah, and the Governor of the state, Nyesom Wike, were cited as perpetrators.

Obuah took Ikanya to task.

“He therefore owes the police the responsibility of providing clues to those who committed this heinous act and should be invited and interrogated for details,” Obuah, said.

He absolved officials of the PDP from any murder case or criminality in state.

Scores of civilians were killed in the run-up to the polls that steered Wike to power.

The election tribunal has nullified the outcome amid widespread violence and vote rigging.
