Wike: We’ll resist this invasion even it means losing our lives

Wike: We’ll resist this invasion even it means losing our lives

Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers state, on Saturday said in his entire political career, he has not witnessed the kind of military invasion that occurred during the legislative rerun election.

Addressing journalists in Port Harcourt, the state capital, Wike vowed that he and his supporters would “resist to the last”.

He accused security operatives of conniving with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to intimidate voters.

“In all my political career, I have never experienced this kind of invasion by security agencies,” he said.

“What causes violence is when you give certain persons undue advantage, but be assured that we are resisting it, even though it may take our lives, we will resist to the last.

“That is what is expected when you are fighting for freedom. You must make sacrifices. It is unfortunate that we are congratulating the opposition for winning in Ghana, but here the military are directly involved in rigging and hijacking materials.

“They say that they want to give Rivers state governor problems, but you are not giving Rivers governor problems, you are giving Nigeria problem.

“I anticipated it. I tried to let the world to know that these were the plans of the security agencies.”

Violence and late arrival of electoral materials marred the exercise in different parts of the state.

One person was killed in Bodo community in Gokana local government, while the exercise did not hold in most parts of Khana local government.
