PDP Spits Fire, Issues 3-day Ultimatum To Security Agencies Over Withdrawal Of Wike’s CSO

By Ikenga Chronicles December 6, 2016

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has on Tuesday, December 6 threatened to take the laws into their hands if the security details of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike are not restored with immediate effect.

The party maintained that the deliberate withdrawal of the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the Governor Wike is an invitation to anarchy.

Recall that the Police allegedly (acting on the instruction of the presidency) withdrew Wike’s CSO alongside about 70 per cent of security personnel ‎attached to the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt.

Also Wike few days ago alleged that there was an assassination plot orchestrated by the police command against his life.

PDP in its statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye said failure to restore the governor’s security details before the December 10 re-run elections in the state is indirectly calling on Rivers people to resort to self-help.

“Our Democracy is in serious danger and if proper care is not taken, we might be heading to anarchy. A stitch in time saves nine!‎” the party warned.

PDP described the withdrawal of the governor’s security as a slap on the nation’s constitution, noting that “the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is very clear on the grounds by which the security of a sitting governor can be withdrawn.”

“‎We therefore call on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Ibrahim Idris and the Director General of State Services (SSS), Lawal Daura to as a matter of urgency restore all the security details of Governor Nyesom Wike and to secure the Government House, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.”

PDP also said former Rivers State governor, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi should be held responsible if anything happens to Governor Wike.
