The home of Former Rivers State Governor and current Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi was reportedly invaded by some policemen recently.
According to a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-South, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, the attack was carried out on the orders of the Rivers Government.
Eze’s conclusion, which was contained in a statement on Friday, alleged that the Port Harcourt home of the minister was invaded at the behest of the State government on the 8th of May, 2019.
According to him, the attack occurred shortly after Governor Wike boasted in a TV interview that Amaechi has become so unpopular that he can’t move around Port Harcourt safely without Security escort and on a day that the Minister was expected to visit Port Harcourt.
He also highlighted that Governor Wike in the said interview stated that the Internal Generated Revenue (IGR) of the State has improved tremendously under his watch but the question the Governor refused to answer is, “what had he achieved with the improved IGR and billions of Naira that accrued to the State through the monthly Federation Account Allocation Committee. The Governor have totally achieved nothing with all the huge funds at his disposal as he allows the State to have the highest number of unemployed youths and unpaid salaries to civil servants and pension to Pensioners all these factors have enhanced insecurity in the State.
The party chieftain had recently, in a statement addressed to Wike, suggested a couple of answers to solving the fearsome peace and security realities in the state, admonishing him to offer ‘true leadership’ as governor of the state for the period the laws will allow him to be in office and discard all political activities that had hitherto distracted him from being an exemplary leader. Wike had earlier called a truce in the face off between him and the APC in the state.
