Stop Attacking Innocent Nigerians, Wike Warns IPOB Members

In view of the rising threat to security, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has warned that government will not tolerate any attack on other Nigerians living in the state by members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) or any other group.
Wike also reminded that Rivers State belongs to all those who live in it, saying that the state heartily welcomes any Nigerian who resides in the state and carries out his or her lawful businesses.

The Governor, however, condemned the deliberate sabotage of the state’s security architecture by the direct criminal activities of the Rivers State Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS).

In a state broadcast on the state security situation on Friday, Governor Wike said “the Rivers State Government is seriously concerned with the recent activities of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), particularly the attack on Nigerian citizens living in Rivers State.

“Rivers people fully subscribe to Nigeria’s corporate existence and its indivisibility. As a people we shall continue to support the unity and peaceful co-existence of all ethnic nationalities and work towards actualizing our collective aspirations for a just, inclusive and progressive nation.

“Rivers State belongs to all those who live in it. We heartily welcome any Nigerian who wishes to reside here and go about with his or her lawful businesses. Therefore, we shall not tolerate any attack by any group on other Nigerians living in Oyigbo or any other part of the State. We warn troublemakers those who are bent on causing violence on others to steer clear of Rivers territory.

“Nobody should take our hospitality and peaceful disposition for weakness, as we are capable of dealing decisively with any situation threatens peace and serenity in the State.”
He went on to say that “We call on Rivers people to be vigilant and not to allow themselves to be used by anybody to foment trouble in our State.
