Governor Wike: "Commissioner Of Police Has Withdrawn My Security"

Ahead of the December 10, 2016, legislative rerun elections in Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike has announced that the State Commissioner of Police has withdrawn majority of policemen providing security for him.

The governor also called on youths in the state to protect their votes and the mandate of the people, despite the planned deployment of security personnel for illegal electoral purposes.

Flagging off the reconstruction of Igbo-Etche Road on Friday, Gov. Wike claimed that the security infraction is orchestrated to intimidate him and that it will not succeed.

He said: “As I speak with you, the Commissioner of Police has withdrawn the security around me. It is God that will protect me. As a governor, the Commissioner of Police has the effrontery to withdraw my security. There is no limit to this kind of intimidation and impunity."

He said despite the assault by the Commissioner of Police and security agencies, nobody in Rivers State will be intimidated by the political antics of the police.

Wike claimed that Rivers State Police Command will deploy policemen in manner that APC leaders in the state will have access to disproportionate number of policemen on election day.

The forthcoming elections are legislative polls. What direct impact will it have on governor Wike's personal security personnel? I think he has very short memory. Has he forgotten that he did same to Amaechi? Indeed this reminds me of an Hausa adage that a murderer abhors the sight of a knife near his neck. I thought that like a thug that he is, he does not require police protection!
