Patience Jonathan Masterminded The Attack On APC – Amaechi

Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi,
has accused Patience Jonathan of masterminding
the attack on members and supporters of the All
Progressives Congress (APC) in Okrika, Rivers
State on February 17, Tuesday.
Amaechi, according to Premium Times, made
these allegations in Abuja after the enlarged APC
leaders meeting at the Shehu Yar’Adua centre
yesterday.
The governor said: “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 organized thugs to disrupt
APC rally. As usual, the police couldn’t protect us,
over 200 police men.
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, is
injured, stabbed, and members of APC injured.
“We had meetings with DSS (Directorate of State
Security) 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.”
Amaechi condemned in strong terms the act of
violence and expressed disappointment over the
inability of law enforcement agents to protect the
APC party members despite having earlier
assured the party of security and given approval
for the campaign to hold.
In a separate development, President Goodluck
Jonathan few days ago addressed Nigerians
asking to support him during the upcoming
general elections as he plans to continue getting
Nigeria on its feet.
Jonathan said he has only started to develop the
country. He promised to continue his
programmes and lead Nigerian to its greatness if
re-elected.
