The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the Federal Government to look into the level of insecurity in River state.

This is coming on the heels of the murder of prominent APC chieftains in the state.

You will also recall that Governor Nyesom Wike, in a bid to curb the rising rate of violence in a state, held a security summit in the violent prone areas.

According to Premium Times, Mr. Segun Oni, the APC acting national chairman said “I am surprised that this kind of thing is happening in Rivers State which indeed is part of Nigeria.

“It is strange that people will kill their fellow human beings, cut off their heads and take them away as if they were souvenirs.”

Oni also said “The Federal Government needs to do something quickly to save this situation, because it is a shame to allow a part of Nigeria to degenerate into this mess.

“The brutal killings of APC members in the state must stop; our people must not continue to die because they identified with a political party.”

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, has deployed 6,000 personnel and 14 units of Police Mobile Force personnel to Rivers state, ahead of the March 19, 2016 re-run elections.
