The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State, Davis Ikanya, has accused the state governor, Nyesom Wike of masterminding the death of its members killed by assassins.
Four APC members: Boris Neenwi, Manager Nkoba, Nornubari Loveday and
Cecilia Loveday were killed in the Gokana local government area of
Rivers state on Monday.
Ikanya, in a statement, called on security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators of the dastardly act are brought to book.
He said, “Monday, 3rd October, 2016 was another sad day for members
of the Rivers state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a
prominent member of the party, Hon. Boris Neenwi, was felled by the
bullets of assassins in Nonwa Tai. Killed alongside Hon. Neenwi were
Manager Nkoba(M), Nornubari Loveday(M) and Cecilia Loveday(F),” Ikanya
said in a statement.
“Late Boris Neenwi, a strong ally of Senator Magnus Abe and staunch
APC member, was a former Councillor who hailed from Yeghe community. He
recently finished his law programme from the University of Maiduguri.
“Until his assassination, late Neenwi was a known critic of Gov.
Nyesom Wike and Wike’s ex-militant leader and collaborator, Solomon
Ndigbara, who also hails from Yeghe community.”
kanya said the killing of Hon. Neenwi shares similarities with how a
certain Vincent Eebee, APC chieftain and ally of Magnus Abe, also from
Yeghe, was gruesomely murdered by suspected agents of the PDP and Wike
six months ago.
“APC unequivocally holds the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike
and his ally, ex-militant leader, Solomon Ndigbara responsible for the
killing of Hon. Boris Neenwi and his companions in Nonwa Tai yesterday.
“We call on the security agencies in Rivers State and at the federal
level to ensure that Solomon Ndigbara and all those who have a hand in
the killing of Hon. Boris Neenwi and the young people who were
gruesomely killed alongside him are apprehended and made to face
“This is yet another senseless killing that must not be swept under
the carpet as has become the pattern in Rivers State especially when APC
members are the victims,” Ikanya added.
The chairman of APC in the state had in August blamed the death of an activist lawyer, Barr Ken Atsuete, on Wike and the PDP.
