Rivers Demands Immediate Release Of SSG, Wike’s Adviser

Nyesom WikeThe Rivers State Government has demanded the immediate and unconditional release of the Secretary to the State Government, Kenneth Kobani, and the Special Adviser to the Governor on Special Projects, Cyril Wite.
There were reports that Kobani was arrested by soldiers for allegedly stalling the distribution of election materials while Wite was nabbed moving with three fake soldiers, some cash running into millions of naira and some army uniforms at Khana on Saturday during the re-run elections in the state.
But the state government described the role of the military in the election as “shameful, embarrassing, and a kick in the face of constitutional democracy”.
“Never in the history of Rivers State have we witnessed such a blatant deployment of maximum violence against unarmed voters”, the government said on Sunday, in a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Communication, Austin Tam-George.
The government alleged that the SSG, Mr. Kobani, was chained to a chair overnight, and denied his medication, despite his failing health.
