The Rivers State Government has denied claims that Governor Nyesom Wike is plotting to cause chaos in the nation’s capital, Abuja.

The allegation was made by the Department of State Services (DSS).

The Rivers government made its denial via a statement released by Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dr. Austin Tam-George.

The statement reads:

“It is an irresponsible scaremongering by an agency that seems bent on a mission to blackmail the governor of Rivers State, and bring the state government into disrepute.”

“Governor Wike is a man of peace, and would never orchestrate disturbances in any part of the country. The Rivers State Government challenges the DSS to leave Governor Wike alone, and instead focus their operational attention on the Boko Haram insurgency that has killed over 70, 000 people, and displaced 6 million Nigerians , in the past six years.

“The government and people of Rivers State will never succumb to cheap blackmail by the DSS, or any federal agency by whatever name.”
