“Clearly, the wife of

the president does not want APC to campaign in Okrika, her local
government area. The wife of the president and the governorship
candidate of the PDP in Rivers again organised thugs to disrupt APC

As usual, the police couldn’t protect us, over 200 police men. I
asked the commissioner of police and he said they had over 200
policemen there. Yet, three explosions and then they opened fire on
members of APC. The Channels TV reporter I hear, is injured, stabbed,
and members of APC injured. We had meetings with DSS (Directorate of
State Security) and police and
they confirmed we could go ahead.There were 200 policemen and there
were over 20 to 30 DSS men who came there and they did nothing”he said.
