Akawor said Wike is in Edo State on official assignment holding the same position Governor Ganduje of Kano State occupies for the All Progressive Party, APC.

“Governor Ganduje and Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State are all in Benin, Edo State carrying out their assignment for the APC without any molestation or intimidation,” he stated.

“And in a breach of the pledge they made security agencies have decided to harass and intimidate Governor Wike who has not done any wrong.

“Rivers People Warn that we Shall hold the IGP responsible for anything that happens to our Governor,” Desmond warned.

P.M.News men tried to confirm the location of the hotel, but without success. A text sent to the police PRO in the state, has not been replied.
