PDP raise alarm as over 300 policemen lay siege to hotel where Gov. Wike is lodging in Edo



Over 300 policemen have laid siege to the hotel in Edo state, where Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike is lodging, says the Peoples Democratic Party.

This was made known by the Rivers state Chairman of the party, Akawor Desmond, in a statement on Friday.

Desmond said the PDP will hold the Inspector-General of Police responsible should any harm come to the governor.

“The attention of the entire people of Rivers State has been drawn to the siege laid at the hotel where the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, is lodging while on official assignment in Benin, Edo State.

“Recall that Governor Wike was appointed Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo governorship election; this is same position Governor Ganduje of Kano State occupies for his party, the APC.

“Ganduje and Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State are all in Benin carrying out their assignment for the APC without any molestation or intimidation. In breach of the pledge they made, security agencies have decided to harass and intimidate Governor Wike who has not done any wrong.

“May I on behalf of the entire Rivers people warn that we shall hold the IGP responsible for anything that happens to our governor,” he said.
