The executive director of marine operations in the Nigerian Ports Authority, Dr Sokonte Davies has claimed that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers is the sponsor and enhancer of criminality in Rivers state.

Davies who spoke at a pro-Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, rally in Port Harcourt said the Squad and other units of the Nigerian Police have done a good job in improving the security situation in the state.

Deal of the day

He said before now that there were manifold evidence of daily murder and beheading in every local government area of the state.

“You have statistics that clearly shows that since the coming of Akim Fakorode the number of beheading has drastically reduced in the state,” Sokonte Davies said.

“They are fighting against SARS because they want to continue beheading people to use for rituals. Only ritualists behead people”

Pro SARS rally in Port Harcourt, Rivers State was held today

Blaming Governor Wike for the violence in the state, the Kalabari born politician stated that “the Rivers State Governor is a direct sponsor, beneficiary and enhancer of criminality in the state.”

Speaking further, Sokonte alleged that some group of people are working to get the Commissioner of Police transferred out of Rivers state because of his refusal to be compromised.

“Even if you don’t say it we know that they want you posted out. They are using Rivers funds to mount a campaign against SARS and other units of the police.”

Sokonte was joined by over 5000 residents of Rivers state as they took to the streets of Port Harcourt today to show solidarity for the Nigerian Police and SARS particularly.

The sea of heads that marched from Polo Club on Tombia Street, GRA to Police headquarters, Forces Avenue in Port Harcourt carried several banners and placards with inscriptions such as:

“No to End SARS”, “SARS fighting criminals to see the state safe”, “SARS has reduced the mindless killings of Rivers people”, “if you end SARS you increase killings”, “to end SARS is to increase Beheading” “Governor Wike making criminals kings and attacking security agents.”

The ten kilometer walk culminated at the Headquarters of the Rivers State Police Command where leaders of the Solidarity Rally took turns to speak before handing over two copies of letters to the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the Rivers State Commissioner of Police Ahmed Zaki Ahmed respectively.
