Governor Nyesom Wike Accuses The Military Of Atrocities During Re-Run Election In Rivers State

Meanwhile, Rivers State Governor Chief Nyesom Wike said in Port Harcourt on Monday that the state government had compiled videos of the atrocities committed by the military across the state during the reruns.

He explained that the videos would be released to the public at the appropriate time, adding that with the declaration of results by returning officers in the respective constituencies, no INEC official was empowered by law to cancel or nullify such results.

The governor said the violence allegedly orchestrated by the military in the state could be part of a plot by the All Progressives Congress to declare a state of emergency in the state based on propaganda.

But the Acting Director, Defence Information, Brigadier-General Rabe Abubakar, has distanced the military from any blame in the River elections.

He said while the military would not take issues with the political leaders of the country, it was important to note that the military had a constitutional responsibility to protect lives and property as provided for in the 1999 Constitution.
