The Rivers state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said Governor Nyesom Wike should be held responsible for the burning of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC’s) office on Friday, July 22, 2016.

The party alleged that Wike had earlier threatened the INEC chairman, Senator Magnus Abe and its chairman, Davies Ikanya.

A statement released by the party also said “We now know better what he meant. His boys burnt INEC office in Bori just because Bori is the senatorial headquarters of Rivers South-East where Sen. Magnus Abe hails from.

“We warned that whenever Wike resorts to throwing mud at innocent people and making unwholesome accusations, he must be up to his familiar sinister games; today, it has manifested in its fullness.

“Security agents should ignore his attempts to blame this heinous act on the APC or anyone else; it was obviously planned by Wike and clinically executed by his foot soldiers.”

The Rivers APC said the Governor always makes comments that promote violence and destruction of property.

The party also alleged that the INEC office in Rivers state was burnt down by members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dakuku Peterside slammed Wike over his comments on INEC.
