Rivers State House of Assembly member, Evans Bipi, has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of staging the attack on its rally in Okrika on Tuesday, February 17.

Bipi, who is believed to be a cousin to First Lady, Patience Jonathan, stated this on Wednesday, 18, via a statement.

"Let this be a warning to Governor Amaechi and Dakuku to leave the First Lady and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Chief Nyesom Wike, and myself, including the PDP, out of their series of stage-managed attacks as their frequent blackmails will always remain dead on arrival,” Bipi stated.

“The statement credited to Peterside, the governorship flagbearer of APC, along with Governor Amaechi, accusing me of leading gunmen to attack their rally in Okrika on Tuesday, is most unfortunate and above all, the height of irresponsibility on their part and the APC. I was outside the state when the report of the ugly incident got to me,” he added.

“While I condemn the said attack in its entirety, I challenge Peterside, Amaechi and the APC to produce the evidence of their spurious allegation against me, the first Lady and the PDP governorship candidate, Chief Wike, within the next 24 hours or else I will take necessary lawful and legal actions against them and their party,” Bipi concluded.

Governor Rotimi Amaechi had accused the Mrs. Jonathan and Wike, the PDP governorship candidate, of being behind the attack on the APC rally.

Bipi has been accused of spearheading efforts to impeach Amaechi and once said that the First Lady, whom he (Bipi) calls “Mummy”, is his personal Jesus Christ.
