Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state


The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has expressed his fear of being arrested by security heads in the state.

According to a report by Sun Newspaper, the governor said this on Friday, November 11, 2016 at a judiciary event in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Wike said: “I was afraid to come out for this programme when I heard that all the security heads in this state came for the programme.

“So, I told my orderly to pack some of my things into a bag that I may not return because they may arrest me from there.

“My orderly asked, but you have immunity, I told him that there couldn’t be immunity in Nigeria when people are arrested anyhow. We don’t respect the rule of law. Anybody can be arrested at anytime”, the governor stated.
