The spokesman of the Rivers state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Samuel Wonosike has alleged that there is a plot by the police in the state to arrest him.

According to Daily Post, Wonosike also said this is despite a court order restraining any security agency from arresting him.

The Rivers PDP spokesman also told newsmen that the team who tried to arrest him was led by the Commander of the Rivers state Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

He also alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has finalised plans to rig the upcoming rerun election.

Wonoskie said “On Thursday night while having dinner with a couple of people at Randolph Hotel here in Port Harcourt, I saw four hilux vans drove in led by one ACP Akin Fakorede and he said they have information that criminals were in the hotel then I wondered when I became a criminal.

“I asked him if I have any criminal record that he knows of. I wonder if he is not aware of a valid court judgment restricting the Police and others from arresting me.

“I know they have plans to arrest me, Wonosike Samuel based on trumped-up charges so they can take me off the way so they can rig election in my Local government, Ikwerre Local government area. We are aware that they have promised to give him N50m if he succeeds to arrest me.

“I want to let them know that leaders of the PDP will not allow themselves to be taken or arrested by any security operative. We will resist any arrest by Akin Fakorede and his cohorts.”

Governor Nyesom Wike has also alleged that the APC is planning with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to manipulate election results.
