It was learnt that Rivers State governor- elect, Mr Nyesom Wike, has denied ever killing anybody or conspiring with any person whatsoever to kill any person in his life and in all his political pursuits, noting that killing anybody has never and will never form part of his strategy to win any election.
Wike, in a statement by Mr Emma Okah, Chairman, Media and Publicity of the PDP Campaign Organisation, Rivers State, was reacting to the allegation of killing made against him by the outgoing Governor Rotimi Amaechi.
According to Okah, “People no longer take Amaechi seriously. Wike did not need to kill anybody to win the 2015 governorship election in the state and one wonders why Amaechi, who is the Chief Security Officer of the state, has kept quiet or refused to press criminal charges against Wike until he is about to be sworn in as governor of Rivers State.”
Okah said Wike has no immunity and wondered what Amaechi was waiting for to prosecute him or anybody he accuses of such a heinous crime if he was to be taken seriously.
“It is shameful for a man to speak loosely the way Amaechi does and we urge him to seek spiritual and medical attention,” Okah opined, noting that no matter how much distractions he causes, he must account for his misdeeds in Rivers State during his tenure as governor.
