The Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose has condemned the reported withdrawal of the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike.

Wike had raised an alarm that the police authorities withdrew his CSO and other security personnel at the Rivers Government House.

Governor Fayose also accused the Federal Government of working hard to turn Nigeria into a one party state.

He called on members of the international community to take note of the alleged atrocities of  the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government.

Fayose said “With this ignoble action by the federal government, it is now clear that the federal government is out to subvert the will of the people of Rivers State by whatever means in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“Nigeria deserve total attention from the international community at this time. The international community should not look the other way while those holding power in Abuja plunge the country into crisis of international magnitude.

“How can anyone tamper with security aides of a State Governor without his consent? How can the Chief Security Officer of a state governor be changed without the consent of the governor? Isn’t it now clear that they actually want to kill Governor Wike before the Saturday election?”

Adding that “Nigeria can never be turned to a one party State and if care is not taken, by the time this house of democracy is destroyed by the APC cabal, no one will be spared.”

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris has revealed that 20,000 policemen will be deployed to Rivers state to provide security during the December 10, 2016 rerun election.
