The Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike has accused the Federal Government of covering corruption.

Wike made the comment in relation to the money which was found in an apartment in Ikoyi by the EFCC.

According to the Governor, the Federal Government is covering the matter because its financial sponsor is involved.

Wike also said that his government is not interested in Rotimi Amaechi’s prosecution, adding that the money should be returned to Rivers state.

The Governor added that if the Federal Government does not return the funds, the administration will not know peace.

Wike made the comment while speaking with Christian leaders in Rivers state.

According to Vanguard, the Governor said “The Federal Government wants us to believe that a security agency will keep a whopping N 16billion in a private residence in cash. They think that Nigerians don’t have brains.

“When millions of dollars were found in Kaduna, the EFCC was quick to announce the owner of that money. Now they don’t know the whistle blower in the case of the Ikoyi Billions and they are afraid to disclose the owner of the money.

“I am not interested in the prosecution of our son, the former governor, Rotimi Amaechi. We are just interested in the return of Rivers money . God has caught them”.
