“He (Amaechi) is only barking. I know him very well. When he was governor, he bragged that he has the Police in his right pocket, that he has the army in his left pocket, that he has the Airforce and the Navy in his back pockets and he still lost the last election woefully,” Ikuru said.

“Let him come with his Army, the police and all the security he has, they cannot do anything. Is it now that we have thrown him out as Governor he wants to win election? It is an empty threat. He is powerless,” he added.

Ikuru served as Amaechi’s deputy from 2007 until March 22, 2015 when he defected to the PDP from the All Progressives Congress (APC) just six days to the general elections.

In explanation of the move, which Amaechi described as shocking, Ikuru said that the Rivers man in him had rejected the APC.
