Wike orders arrest of Atiku’s ally in Rivers

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has ordered the arrest of Chinyere Igwe, a member of the House of Representatives, Charmingpro reports.

Igwe is a cousin of Austin Opara, a supporter of the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The lawmaker is said to be the owner of a filling station in Diobu, Port Harcourt, that security agents sealed off on Friday.

Wike claimed that the filling station’s product is sourced from illegal refineries known as kpo-fire.

Wike stated that he had told security agencies that “if I hear anything that any filling station is involved in oil bunkering, I will close that filling station, and thus I have directed the security agencies to know who has that filling station in Diobu and arrest that person, and we are going to prosecute the person.”

“It makes no difference how high-ranking that person is. Some of you should be trained to teach.

“The time has come; we cannot allow oil bunkering.”

Igwe, speaking about the closure of his filling station on Friday, called the security agencies’ actions “politically motivated.”
