Following his revelation that officials of the Rotimi Amaechi-led administration had looted properties at the Rivers State Government House, Governor Nyesom Wike on Monday, June 1, 2015 conducted leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to a tour of the shockingly empty complex.
Those present for the tour included: his deputy; former Rivers deputy governor, Tele Ikuru, former Attorney-General of the state, Frank Owhor, National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, former Minister of Sports, Dr Danagogo, former Minister of Trade and Investment, Kenneth Kobani, Rivers State PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah, former Minister of Transport, Dr Abiye Sekibo and Nigeria’s Ambassador to South Korea, Desmond Akawor.
Speaking after the tour, Amaechis Deputy, Ikuru expressed his disappointment that officials of the Amaechi administration would resort to stealing of furniture, rugs and electrical fittings, urging Governor Wike to prosecute the culprits.
Speaking on the ugly development Obuah said: “It is unimaginable that the beds, chairs and official crested rugs in the Governor’s official quarters were stolen. Even the foam they left is Mouka foam, which they used to replace the original foam.
“This level of looting is embarrassing and must not go unpunished. It is sad that officials of the last, administration will go to that level in their quest to destabilize the incoming administration.”
Also looted from the complex were official cars, over 500 chairs and tables from the 1000-person capacity Banquet Hall and kitchen accessories.See photos from the Government House below (click on any image to enlarge)
