The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressice Congress (APC) has denied allegations that it masterminded the arrest of the Secretary to Rivers State government, Kenneth Kobani.
In a statement signed by the Senior special assistant to the APC chairman in Rivers state, Chukwuemeka Eze, the party disclosed that it was of no relevance and important if it asked the police to arrest the SSG.
The APC said the SSG was of no political relevance to the party in Rivers.
“Why should we mastermind the arrest of Kobani? What is his political relevance? Does his position as SSG place him above the law? Are we the one that asked him to be lawless that warranted his arrest?”
The APC in Rivers state described itself as ” a political party are orderly and decent group that wants the best for Rivers State.” while berating the PDP for trying to act above the law.
“Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi who is a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was directed by the DIG Police to vote and leave to his residence and he complied then who is Kobani to be moving around intimidating voters in polling units that he does not belong to? Is it because he belongs to PDP that makes him to be above the law? He contravened the law and must face the music not minding the rattling of PDP”
“Maybe very soon they will accuse us of planting the N40M, Arms, Police and Army Uniforms in the car of Mr. Cyril Dum Wite, S.A to Gov Nyesom Wike on Special Projects that led to his arrest.”
“Look at the embarrassment and national shame that Wike and PDP have brought to the State for the few months they hold sway in the State. Today we are looked upon as barbarians that behead and burn fellow human beings as if they are goats.”
