The Rivers State Government has said it will not assist the police in the ongoing investigation on electoral fraud carried out during the rerun legislative election in the state.
Governor Nyesom Wike stated this at the thanksgiving organized by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The Governor said his decision was based on the negligence of the Police High Command, whom he accused of deliberately ignoring the alarm raised by the state government.
Governor Wike also challenged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to release result of Rivers South-East to ascertain the winner of the election.
“They are accusing you that you are the ones killing our people, you are now saying that the Rivers state government should give you assistance.
“Which assistance have we not given? We told you that you appointed policemen who will interfere with the election process. We told you that you have appointed policemen to those people who are contesting election you refused to say anything.
“Now you are asking the Rivers state Government to come and assist you. Assist you to do what?” Wike asked.
