Wike fires back: I’ve Never Killed Anybody

Rivers State governor-elect, Chief Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike, has denied the allegation by Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi that he conspired with someone to kill innocent people of the state in order to win the governorship election.

Amaechi had while speaking at a public lecture to mark his 50th birthday anniversary in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, accused the governor-elect of hiring a former militant leader in the Niger Delta region, to mastermind the killing of innocent people of the state during the just concluded general elections.
But Wike, in a statement issued in Port Harcourt yesterday, said he had never killed anybody or conspired with any other person whatsoever to kill any person, pointing out that in all his political pursuits, killing of anybody has never and will never form part of his strategy to win any election.
The statement, which was signed by the chairman, Media and Publicity Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party Campaign Organisation (PDPCO) in the state, Barrister Emma Okah, said Wike did not need to kill anybody to win the 2015 general elections in the state and wondered why Amaechi who is the chief security officer of the state has kept quiet or refused to press criminal charges against him until Wike is about to be sworn in as governor of Rivers State.
He stated that the governor-elect has no immunity and wondered what Amaechi was waiting for to prosecute him or anybody he accuses of such a heinous crime if he is to be taken seriously.
Okah said, “It is shameful for a man to speak loosely like a lunatic the way Amaechi does and we urge him to seek spiritual and medical attention; no matter how much distractions he causes, he must account for his misdeeds and looting of Rivers State during his tenure as governor.”
