The Rivers state government has alleged that the defeated governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress in Rivers state, Peterside Dakuku attempted to assassinate Mr Emeka Woke, the chief of staff to Nyesome Wike.

This is contrary to a report by Sahara reporters that the chief of staff to Nyesome Wike, the state governor, Mr Emeka Woke attempted to Dakuku who is now the Director general of port agency, NIMASSA.

“There’s absolutely no way, the Chief of Staff who moves without security can effectively commandeer the assassination of Dakuku Peterside, who himself invaded the Mile 1 police station in commando style today to release a detained corrupt INEC official with a little less than 100 soldiers on this very day. It is just unthinkable,” Oraye Franklyn, senior special assistant to the Rivers state governor told our reporter.

He said Dakuku’s security attacked the Chief Emeka Woke adding that the state of the Chief of Staff is unknown while denying his arrest by the Department of State Security.

“Dakuku Peterside knows this to be true which is why he was prompt to claim assassination on his part, having reasonably  failed to apprehend the Chief of Staff. Dakuku Peterside must be invited for questioning on the matter and it is condemnable and most unconscionable that he claims to be a victim of assassination in spite of the army of security at his beck and call including the dare-devil FSARS, DSS, Police and the Military; the magnitude of which no Nigerian Governor is privileged to have.”

Speaking further, he said: “The most presumable fact is that Engr. Emeka Woke must have been believed to be conveying the election results from his home town Emohua to the INEC headquarters in Port Harcourt prompting the evil attack on him to retrieve the papers. This is the only logical consequence, given the fact that a similar attack was carried out on an INEC van along Airport road today by men loyal to Rotimi Amaechi and Dakuku Peterside.

“It is therefore the most depressing evil for Sahara Reporters to present a false account to the public when an innocent man is battling for his life.

“The desperation being shown by the Rivers State APC should not be given cover by misleading and false news headlines. The entire country has seen that the trio of Rotimi Amaechi, Dakuku Peterside and Ibim Semenitari are at the heart of the ensuing violence and restivity in Rivers State in a bid to win the Court-ordered rerun elections at all costs.

He equally blamed citizen journalism platform, Saharareporters for “misleading the public” in its report.

“The infamously dubious online news medium, Sahara Reporters in its characteristic nature has issued an absurd report of pure falsehood riddled with undiluted malice and mischief to malign the character, name and reputation of Engr. Emeka Woke, the Chief of Staff Government House, Port Harcourt, purporting that he carried out an assassination attempt on the life of Dakuku Peterside, the defeated Rivers State APC Governorship candidate.

“Nothing can be more bespeaking of the grandeur of the absurd. The narrative concocted by Sahara Reporters is intended to excuse the evil plots of the cultic characters that parade themselves as leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State.

“Sahara Reporters must endeavour to be a true partner for social reengineering by promoting truth and justice rather than make itself available to the dictates of fat-chested warmongers. The entire story as reported by Sahara Reporters is false, baseless and inciting anarchy in Rivers State. The Chief of Staff, Government House, who is a victim of gunviolence should not be victimised by might of pervading media. Truth must be protected and promoted,” he said.
