Attention Nigerians: Several Communities in Rivers State in three LGAS are under military/Police siege

Ahead of the re-run National  and State Assemblies elections  in designated  constituencies in Rivers  State, three Local Government Areas  in the state are under politically  motivated vicious attacks which have left in their trail,  tales of deaths, blood, destruction  and open intimidation.
These joint  military/Police  invasions have taken place  in  three LGAS  of the state namely  Gokana,  Asari-Toru and Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni(ONELGA). One recurring  decimal  in these three deadly  invasions is the fact that one Major  Mustapha  features  in all of them. Major Mustapha , a Pro-APC  military officer, was the Rivers  State  APC  star witness during the  hearing  of election petitions  in Abuja.
At Asari-Toru LGA on 6th January,  2016, Major Mustapha  and his team of dare-devil soldiers  and mobile policemen  invaded the residences of the caretaker council chairman, Ambassador  Sobomabo Jackrich, destroying his homes and valuables before killing about five youths. They also abducted  50 youths and women who were taken to Port Harcourt. 
The same scenario  played  out  in Bua Yeghe in Gokana LGA where Major Mustapha and his illegal politically  motivated  squad attacked the home of Chief Solomon Ndigbara, a former  Niger Delta agitator.  They burnt  his home, before abducting his wife and 70 other youths. The Major  Mustapha  illegal  squad  also attacked  the home of Chief Ndigbara  in Port Harcourt,  damaging the facility. 
On 13th January,  2016 the soldiers  and mobile policemen  were at ONELGA were they unleashed mayhem  on lives and property. The residents of the area are still counting their losses.
It is imperative  to point out that in these three LGAs  where Major Mustapha  and other illegal security  operatives  struck, they were accompanied  by  known APC  political  thugs and militants who acted as identity operatives.  These APC  agents who were embedded in these illegal  operations were kitted with security  uniforms. Despite  these security  costumes, they were identified  by locals. 
This level of political  desperation is unknown  to the nation’s democratic  history. No authority had in the past handed security  platforms  to political  thugs and associates to unleash untold mayhem and deaths on law abiding  citizens.
But one thing is clear this resort to intimidation and destruction  will not  improve the lack lustre fortune of Rivers APC.  If anything, it has further depleted the party’s  miserable five percent.  The immediate past governor of Rivers State and leader of Rivers State APC, Mr Chibuike Amaechi  squandered N3trillion that accrued  to the  state under his watch leaving  the  people  impoverished  and angry. That unconscionable act will not be forgotten simply because APC  has authorised Major  Mustapha  to kill innocent  people  .
Those who sent Major Mustapha  must be told that there is no APC  in Rivers State.  The party thrives on falsehood  and mismanagement  of resources.  The Rivers people  are  enjoying  good  governance  and first class  performance  under Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.  They have therefore  committed  themselves  to the PDP. 
Every  well meaning  Nigerian is invited  to  take note of this unprecedented violence  being visited on innocent  Rivers people  by the military and the police  under the ungodly  guidance  of the Rivers State APC. The National Human  Rights  Commission is also invited to play her role at this critical  time.  The affected  local  government  areas  have on their  own conducted media  tours of the invaded communities. The civil  society  is in the know of the illegal  invasions  of  the  unarmed  communities. 
Rivers State is PDP  with Governor Wike as the people ordained  leader with  the  magic wand of delivery being enjoyed  by the state. No amount  of  military/Police intimidation  can promote  APC in the state.
