Obuah also called for the arrest and prosecution of Barry Mpigi, who he claimed hijacked electoral materials in Tai local government area to his home town, Koroma, with the aid of the military, PM News reports.

He also accused Felix Nwaeke, the former commissioner for youth in the state of conniving with an army captain to abscond with all electoral materials for ward 2, Obeakpu, in Oyigbo LGA.


Obuah blamed leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), alongside Jukaye Flag Amachree and others for masterminding the violence, killings and various electoral malpractices that marred the rerun election in some parts of the state.

A statement by Jerry Needam, his media adviser read: “Bro Obuah says it is most disappointing and embarrassing that the APC chieftains preferred to act irresponsibly and undemocratically by engaging in electoral frauds and using the military to intimidate the electorate and INEC officials in some parts of the rather than embarking on intensive campaigns to make the party known and popular in order to be voted for at the polls.

“He strongly condemned the involvement of the army in the elections which heightened tension in the State and emboldened the APC chieftains to carry out nefarious conducts during the exercise in the State, including disrespecting State authorities, Court orders and rule of law.”

The PDP chairman faulted Ibim Semenitari, the acting managing director of NDDC for engaging in ballot paper hijack and falsification of polls results.


Obuah decried the assassination attempt on the Government House chief of staff, Engr. Emeka Woke, the assault on the secretary to the state government, Hon. Kenneth Kobani and other PDP leaders.

No fewer than five people were killed during the federal and state legislative rerun elections in Rivers state. Dynamites were reportedly detonated in Konor local government area in the course of the elections.

The election was marred with other irregularities such as snatching of ballot boxes which culminated in the cancellation of polls in some local government areas of the state.
