Dakuku Peterside has slammed Governor Nyesom Wike over his recent allegations against the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris.

Peterside, the Director-General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) also called on Wike to go to court if he has proof.

The Rivers Governor had earlier alleged that the police boss is after his life.

Wike also said Idris and his team want to plant weapons in his Abuja home, to frame him for terrorism.

Speaking further, Peterside said “This is the first time in the history of Nigeria that the governor of a state will openly accuse the nation’s number one policeman of plotting to kill him. “Wike claims he is a lawyer and we expect such a person to head to court to bring the police boss to justice if he has facts and proof to get conviction.

“Accusing the Police IG of attempted murder is a serious offence.”
