Ahead of the legislative rerun in the Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike, has raised the alarm that his Chief Security Officer has been withdrawn.
Wike said that his CSO was withdrawn on Monday alongside several other policemen from Government House, Port Harcourt.
The governor added that the Police High Command, also on Monday, effected the transfer of 500 senior and junior police officers from the state and posted to the state, policemen saddled with ulterior agenda.
He spoke at Khana Local Government Area when he led PDP candidates to campaign at Babbe, Ken Khana and Nyor Khana Districts.
Wike, who claimed that the police were partisan and plotting to compromise his security, added that he was looking up to God and the youths to protect him.
“Does the Inspector General of Police vote in Rivers State? The APC can take the IG. For me, I will remain with the people,” Wike said.
He charged youths in areas where elections would hold to monitor results from polling units to the collation centres, adding that the youths must resist anyone trying to smuggle in cooked results.
The governor declared Wednesday to Friday as fasting days for the December 10 rerun elections and urged the people of the state to use the three days to pray for peaceful and credible elections.
However, several calls to the State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Nnamdi Omoni, to react to the governor’s claim were not answered.
Also, a text message to his mobile phone was not replied as of the time of filing this report.
