Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that his government will release the audio -visual footages of the Rivers State Police Commissioner plotting with politicians on how to rig the December 10 legislative rerun elections in the state.
He spoke at the flag off of the rehabilitation of the General Hospital, Abonnema in Akuku-Toru Local Government Area on Monday.
Wike noted that the audio-visual footages will be made public through different media platforms to expose the extreme rigging desires of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with the backing of the police and other security agencies.
He noted that the 600 policemen working with the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS ) in the state, the police commissioner has already distributed them to prominent APC leaders on a local government basis for the indiscriminate arrests of PDP supporters few days to the election.
The governor added that the 600 SARS personnel distributed would also be used to unleash unprecedented violence on the people on election day , so that APC leaders would have time to substitute results sheets handed over to them by the INEC leadership.
He said: “We are now in possession of the DVD of how the Police Commissioner and some politicians were planning on how to rig the forthcoming Legislative re-run elections in Rivers State.
“At the appropriate time , we shall release the materials for Nigerians to understand the depth of the Electoral fraud being perpetrated by INEC and Police.
“Now that we have caught them on tape, this will shake the world. Rivers State is not like other states where you can plot and execute easy rigging plans.
“We are ahead of them by 50 steps. If they take one step, we take 50. On behalf of our people, we shall continue to monitor these persons who are trying to steal the mandate of our people.”
