Governor Wike of Rivers State has been accused of the massacre of Igbo People in Obigbo in relation to #Endsars protest that other state participated, why is Obigbo own different.
.Rivers State Governor, Nyeson wike has described the allegation that he ordered the Nigerian Army to kill Igbos in Oyigbo Local Government Area, as a politically motivated falsehood, the truth still remains that there can not be military action in a state without the Governors consent.
Mr Wike maintained that curfew was imposed in Oyigbo to restore calm after members of proscribed indigenous people organisation of Biafra (IPOB) killed, soldiers, and police officers and destroyed all police stations and court buildings there but what Wike refuse to tell us is the police and army ill-treatment to the people of obigbo before the Obigbo ipob member reacted in defence of their people..
The governor gave the explanation on a live television program in Port Harcourt on Monday, according to his special assistant on media, Kelvin Ebiri.
He said the narrative that Igbos were being killed by the military is intended to shift attention from the despicable activities of IPOB in Oyigbo, which is a boundary area adjoining Abia State.
Mr Wike said “I know that this is not the first time, IPOB has used Oyigbo as launching ground. The security agencies are aware. IPOB added a new dimension this time. They killed 6 Army Officers and burnt one. They killed four Police Officers. They destroyed all the Police Stations and Court Buildings. What offence did we commit as a state?
One question to Governor Wike, what was the army and police treatment to the people of Obigbo people before this massacre because people can’t just start attacking army and police if there’s no reprisal attack.
