A non governmental organisation, Rivers Consultative Forum, RCF, has alleged that immediate past Governor Rotimi Amaechi and defeated Rivers State APC Governorship candidate, Dakuku Peterside have concluded plans to provoke violence in Rivers State during their so-called Black Friday Political Rally.
In a statement released in Port Harcourt on Wednesday, November 26, 2015 National co-ordinator of RCF, Godfrey Tonye stated that information available to the group show that Imo State and Edo State Governors have already released deadly political thugs to the two politicians for the illegal rally.
The group stated that the political thugs are quartered in former Governor Amaechi’s private properties scattered in Port Harcourt, while others are accommodated in Dakuku Peterside houses.
According to the group, security agencies should work fast to arrest the situation by investigating Amaechi and Dakuku Peterside with all their close associates especially, one Achinike Wobodo, who is co-ordinating the illegal rally for the APC.
The group said that Amaechi and Dakuku Peterside are investing funds illegally acquired in negative propaganda against the government and people of Rivers State to justify the violence they unleashed on the people.
The group called on security agencies to take measures to ensure that all the imported thugs are arrested and prosecuted.
They explained that Amaechi and Dakuku Peterside were rejected because they mismanaged Rivers State funds and used same to betray the Niger Delta cause.
The group said that these politicians ceased to be respected the day they turned their back on the people for an unholy alliance with the oppressors of the region.
