IGP Orders Arrest of Witnesses for Testifying in Favour of Wike


Two senior police officers, an Assistant  Commissioner  of Police and former  Area Command  of Bori  Zonal Police  Command in Rivers State, Mr  Akuki  Kenneth and  a Chief Superintendent of  Police, CSP, Uche  Mike Chukwuma on Friday testified before  the  Rivers  State Governorship Election.

They both contradicted the claims by soldiers that the election was marred by violence.

However, shortly after they gave evidence, a mild drama occurred within the court premises as plain clothes policemen, who claimed to be acting on the orders of the Inspector General of Police arrested the two officers who testified before the tribunal.

In his testimony, the ACP said he supervised the  election  in nine Local  Government  Areas‎ and that  the governorship poll held  on April 11 was peaceful and that there was  no disruption  of  voting in  the state.

According to him, there was peaceful  distribution  of election  materials while voting held successfully.
