Fayose condemns sack of six police aides attached to Gov Wike, says; “Police has merged with APC”

Ekiti State Governor, has described the sack of six police officers attached to the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike as “the height of
political victimisation by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government just because the policemen were among the patriotic
Nigerians who foiled the attempt by the party to rig the Rivers State rerun elections.”
Governor Fayose, who described the six police officers as heroes of democracy, said “their names will be written in gold in the comity of defenders of the people of Rivers State and whenever normalcy returns to our body polity, they will surely regain their job.”
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and
New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose questioned the police
authority on what it has done in respect of the Police officers that
Nigerians have seen on videos, hijacking ballot boxes.
“Funny, they claimed that the six police officers, while in the convoy
of Governor Wike misused the firearms in their possession and I have
asked myself, who did they shoot with the firearms said to have been
misused?

“The policemen simply did their job by protecting their principal and
punishing them for performing their duties can only be meant to
discourage policemen from protecting Governor Wike and other
opposition Governors.”

The governor also challenge the police to tell Nigerians the report of
its investigations on the murder of Deputy Superintendent of Police,
Mohammed Alkali, and his driver during the Rivers State rerun
elections.

He said; “Since Christian Chukwuemela Ekikeme, a member of the gang
that killed DSP Alkali, and his driver reportedly linked a certain Mr
Kachi Nwokocha, who is a top member of the APC and an aide of the
Minister of Transportation and immediate past governor of Rivers
State, Rotimi Amaechi as sponsor of the gang, the police has been
silent on the murder.

 “Up till today, the man mentioned as the sponsor of the gang that
allegedly killed the DSP has not been questioned by the police.
“Why didn’t the police handle the murder of DSP Alkali and his driver
with the speed of lighting that it handled the dismissal of the six
police officers?
“Why are Nigerians not being told anything about the murder and the
involvement of an APC chieftain just the way the police paraded the
six police officers?”

 He said “it is sad that instead of focusing on those who killed its
men, the police is now acting as an arm of the APC by punishing
whoever acted against the wish of the vindictive leaders of the
party.”
