Rivers rerun: PDP demands reinstatement of dismissed policemen

08 January 2017, 07:08

Abuja - The national caretaker committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the reinstatement of the six policemen who were dismissed on Friday over their alleged unethical behaviour during the December 10 legislative rerun election in Rivers State.
 

In a statement signed by the party’s spokesperson of the national caretaker committee, Dayo Adeyeye, PDP alleged that “the hurried dismissal of these police men is another valid pointer to the pre-election rigging plans and the assassination attempt on Governor Nyesom Wike by the APC-led administration before the December 10, 2016 Rerun Elections in Rivers State”

Adeyeye said the offense adduced for their secret trial and subsequent dismissal was a mere concoction and a ruse.

He alleged that the dismissal was a pointer that there was a planned rigging of the election.

Adeyeye said, “The hurried dismissal of these policemen is another valid pointer to the pre-election rigging plans and the assassination attempt on Governor Wike by the All Progressives Congress- led administration before the December 10, 2016 rerun elections in Rivers State.

“It will be recalled that the Nigeria Police Force withdrew over 70 percent of its personnel deployed in Rivers State Government House and the Chief Security Officer to the governor few days to the elections.

“It is obvious by this latest action that the APC-led administration after the failed assassination attempt on Wike, decided to punish the six police officers who defended their oath of office and job ethics by refusing to carry out the hatchet plans.”
