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
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.
