FG shielding Rotimi Amaechi from Prosecution – Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nye­som Ezenwo Wike, has de­clared that the Federal Gov­ernment is shielding Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi from prosecu­tion on alleged corruption as a re­sult of his financial commitment during the 2015 General Elections for the APC.

This is as Gov Wike berated former Gov Amaechi for allegedly superintending over a vicious inse­cure system that led to the alleged assassination of prominent Riv­ers indigenes.

The governor also stated that the failure of the former governor to fund the operation of security agencies for over six months dur­ing his second term contributed to the degeneration of security in the state.

Speaking on Tuesday during a special appearance on a private rel­evision, Gov Wike pointed out that Amaechi’s closure of courts for two years negatively affected security in the state as security agencies were overwhelmed by the challenges of managing suspects, while Rivers people were denied avenues to ven­tilate their grievances.

He said: “It was under Amae­chi that I was almost assassinated when I was his Chief of Staff. Un­der him, Ignatius Ajuru was assas­sinated, Charles Nsiegbe was as­sassinated. Yet, he says the state is not as secured as it was during his term. The courts were shut down for two years. No despotic leader in the world had ever shut down courts. Amaechi entered the Guin­ness book of records for this noto­rious act of denying people access to justice.

The governor stated that: “Jus­tices came to say that Amaechi came to procure judgment. If it is a Federal Government that is sin­cere, they will not want to do any­thing with Amaechi.

“In APC, once they lose a case, they berate the judiciary. It is only when they win that they praise the judiciary.”

The governor added: “Amaechi used part of the $309m proceeds of the Rivers State Gas Turbine sale to fund the APC which is why the party rallies around him to shield him from prosecution in spite of his several indictments.
