Rivers police commissioner denies Governor’s allegation

Wike had earlier alleged that Odesanya was plotting with members of the APC to manipulate election results.

The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike

Governor Nyesom Wike had earlier alleged that Odesanya was plotting with members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to manipulate election results.

Wike also said he caught the Rivers police commissioner on camera while he was hatching the plot to deliver victory to the opposition.

According to Punch, Odesanya said he is trying to ensure that the election holds peacefully, adding that the Governor’s allegation is a distraction.

The Rivers CP also said “My position is this: I am going to be neutral, I am going to be non-partisan, I am going to be neutral and everybody will have a level-playing field. I am planning how to make election free and fair, but he (governor) is distracting me with all these; The governor is saying he has a clip where I was discussing with the APC on how to rig the election. Election is barely two weeks; if he has a clip, why is he saying it? Let him release it now.

“I don’t know whether a minister of the Federal Republic cannot be seen talking with me. If the minister representing the state is in town and he calls me, can I not see him? Is it an offence?”

The question begging to be answered is: What is the name of the minister of the federal republic that Odesanya held a meeting with?

You will recall that the Edo state commissioner of police, Finihan Adeoye was reportedly sacked for allegedly meeting with Chief Gabriel Igbinedion ahead of the September 28, 2016 governorship election in the state.
