The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied allegations concerning the party’s alleged involvement in the yesterday’s arrest of Kenneth Kobani, the secretary to the Rivers state government, and Cyril Wite, Governor Wike’s special adviser.

According to Leadership, responding to the PDP’s accusations, the APC chairman in Rivers, Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, on Sunday, March 20, released a statement in Port Harcourt.

“Why should we mastermind the arrest of Kobani? What is his political relevance? Does his position as SSG place him above the law? Are we the one that asked him to be lawless that warranted his arrest?

“We as a political party is orderly and decent group that wants the best for Rivers state. Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi who is a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was directed by the DIG police to vote and leave to his residence and he complied then who is Kobani to be moving around intimidating voters in polling units that he does not belong to?

“Is it because he belongs to PDP that makes him to be above the law? He contravened the law and must face the music not minding the rattling of PDP. Maybe very soon they will accuse us of planting the N40M, arms, police and army uniforms in the car of Mr. Cyril Dum Wite, S.A to Governor Nyesom Wike on special projects that led to his arrest,” he said.
