A pretty bold accusation from Rivers State Governor as he has accused the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan of being behind the attack on members and supporters of the APC rally in Okrika, Rivers State earlier today (Tuesday, Feb 17th, 2015).
Here’s what he had to say:
“Again, as usual, the wife of the President won’t allow the APC hold rally in that place (Okrika). The wife of the President and the governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers again organised thugs to disrupt the APC rally.
“As usual, the police couldn’t protect us; over 200 policemen. I asked the commissioner of police and he said they have over 200 policemen there. Yet, three explosions and then they opened fire on members of APC. The Channels TV reporter, I hear, was injured, stabbed, and members of APC injured.
“We had meetings with DSS (Directorate of State Service) and police and they confirmed we could go ahead. There were 200 policemen and there were over 20 to 30 DSS men, who came there and they did nothing.”
