Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,
yesterday raised the alarm that
anarchy looms in Rivers State
over incessant harassments and
assassination attempts on the life of
Governor Nyesom Wike.

International Community to take
note of these chain of activity that are
carefully planned by the Ruling APC

of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi. If
anything happens to Governor Wike
or his immediate family and aides,
the APC and Mr. Amaechi should
be held responsible. “A stich in time
saves nine”.
