The attention of the Rivers State Government has been drawn to a malicious, mischievous and a completely false report emanating from a social media based medium of the alleged transfer of ‘Biafran prisoners’ from the Port Harcourt prison to Kaduna where it is claimed they are to be executed on the orders of President Muhammadu Buhari with the support of the Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, CON.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Rivers State Government puts it on record that the contrived report is the figment of the imagination of those who concocted it. It is false and intended to cause disaffection among the peace-loving people of Rivers State and their neighbours.
The State government assures the general public that the Rivers State Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice, Emmanuel Chinwe Aguma, SAN, has conferred with the Comptroller of Port Harcourt Prisons to ascertain the veracity of the report and has confirmed that it is completely false.
We also put it on record that the false report bears the trademarks of desperate opposition elements determined to stop at nothing, including the concoction of unwholesome propaganda to usurp, truncate and steal the mandate of Rivers people through every imaginable means possible, regardless of the worrying degree of irrationality and threat to our collective wellbeing, harmony and peaceful coexistence.
The Rivers State government, therefore, warns those whose penchant it is to fabricate and churn out falsehood and all manner of propaganda to desist forthwith from such unpatriotic acts as it shall not fail henceforth to mobilise the necessary resources, both within and outside the shores of Nigeria, to nip, expose and neutralise their structures and bring them to justice irrespective of their locations anywhere in the world.
The Rivers State government commends the good people of Rivers State and, indeed, all Nigerians for seeing through the antics of consistent losers and failed politicians seeking to derail the soaring flight of governance in Rivers State.
The Rivers State government shall remain focused on delivering the much needed and hitherto abandoned service delivery to Rivers people and continue to put smiles on their faces irrespective of the political gang-up against them and their beloved Rivers State.
