Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi is optimistic that members and supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not be harassed and molested by the Nigerian Army or Police following the victory of General Muhammadu Buhari.
Amaechi, while addressing loads of APC supporters in Bani, Bean Ken-Khana, Kaani-babee, Nwiyakara, Kono-Boue, Uegwere-Boue, Zaakpor, Kaani and Opu-oko communities, frowned at the electoral fraud and rigging of the presidential election by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and warned that any criminally-minded person who attempts to deprive Rivers people from exercising their legitimate franchise will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
According to him, “We are all eyewitnesses to what happened during the last presidential election where the Peoples Democratic Party carried out electoral fraud with INEC officers and the police. But now, the police or the military will not harass you again. I have come to thank you all for refusing to vote without result sheets in 28th March elections. I called one of my friends in the army and cautioned him then he told me on phone that, “Sir, Parade has changed gear”.
Amaechi explained what the statement means is that, supporters of APC will no longer be molested and harassed by the police or the military. Everybody can come out and exercise their franchise.
The governor, who vowed to use the law to bring the killers of Chief Christopher Adube, his three children, his younger brother, lyke Ikechukwu and his two gatemen to book, assured party supporters that security agencies will no longer harass them.
