Rivers APC Calls For Investigation Into Continuous Attacks

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers, has called on
security agencies to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of assault and
arson against its members and their property.

Report says that the Rivers Police
Command had confirmed the arsonists attack on the residence of Lloyd, a former
leader of Rivers Assembly and chieftain of APC.
Chief Davies Ikanya, APC chairman in the state told newsmen
in Port Harcourt on Sunday that members of his party were being assaulted
daily.
Ikanya said that the burning of Dr Chidi Lloyd’s house was a
new angle to the intimidation of APC members in the state by the opponents.
He said that leaders and members of his party were being
arrested, detained and charged to court on trumped-up charges before the State
High Court in Port Harcourt by the Rivers government.
According to Ikanya, the Rivers government is setting
precedence by revisiting a `Noelle Presque’ entered in 2013 to discontinue a
trial against Lloyd.
“This is the first time a Noelle Presque entered is being
revisited. It is purely a move to get the former leader by all means.
“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led government in the
state is not willing to wait for proper investigation by the Nigeria Police, or
follow the law on issues involving APC members,” he said.
Ikanya further alleged that a landed property of APC’s State
Women Leader, Mrs Caroline Nagbo, was invaded and vandalised by suspected
political thugs that were on the run.
He called on the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Idris
Ibrahim and Director General, Department of State Services (DSS), Mr Mammam
Daura, to check the “madness in Rivers’’.
“We call on the Nigeria Police, DSS and other security
agencies to apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to justice promptly,” he
said.

The APC urged aggrieved youths in to desist from
worsening the national economy in the face of recession through bombings and destruction
of pipelines.
