Wike fingered in Neenwi's assassination

05 October 2016, 11:06Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has blamed Governor Nyesom Wike and ex-militant leader, Solomon Ndigbara, for the murder of prominent party member, Boris Neenwi, and colleagues in Nonwa Tai earlier this week.

Unknown assassins killed Neenwi alongside Manager Nkoba, Nornubari Loveday and Cecilia Loveday.

APC regional Chairman, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said until his assassination, Neenwi was a known critic of Wike and Ndigbara, who also hails from Yeghe community.

He said the killing of Neenwi shared similar imprints with how another APC chieftain and ally of Senator Magnus Abe, late Dr. Vincent Eebee also from Yeghe was murdered by suspected agents of the People’s Democratic Party and Wike six months ago.

“APC unequivocally holds the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike and his ally, ex-militant leader, Solomon Ndigbara responsible for the killing of Honourable Boris Neenwi and his companions in Nonwa Tai yesterday,” Ikanya said.

He called on the security agencies in Rivers State and at the federal level to “leave no stones unturned” to ensure Ndigbara and all who had a hand in the killing of Neenwi and colleagues were apprehended and made to face justice.

“This is yet another senseless killing that must not be swept under the carpet as has become the pattern in Rivers State especially when APC members are the victims,” Ikanya said.
