The Rivers State government has expressed sadness over the failure of the police to invite the Minister of State for Education, Nyesom Wike, for questioning over his alleged threat to make the state ungovernable.
The Chief of Staff, Government House, Port Harcourt, Tony Okocha, while addressing the chairman and members of the council of chiefs of Ekinigbo clan in Obio/Akpor Local Council, who paid him a solidarity visit Monday, decried the failure of the police to interrogate the minister.
Okocha described Wike as being ungrateful to Governor Chibuike Amaechi whom he said brought Wike to the limelight by first appointing him as his Chief of Staff and then later nominated him for ministerial appointment in the President Goodluck Jonathan’s cabinet.
He bemoaned the latest cases of kidnapping and armed robbery in the state, which he explained resurfaced because the police have allegedly compromised the security.
Wike was said to have, at the Grassroot Democratic Initiative (GDI) event in Port Harcourt, said “for those who think that they can destroy Obio-Akpor Local Council, we will make life uncomfortable for them. We will make sure they will not sleep again. When they are sleeping, they will not sleep with their two eyes closed. One eye will be open because they know there is danger.”
