Dr. Dakuku Peterside, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 elections in Rivers State, has condemned the gruesome and callous murder of Ofinijite Amachree, an APC stalwart in Buguma, Asari-Toru Local Government Area of the state.

Amachree, who was burnt alive yesterday morning by thugs believed to be members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was first beaten to a pulp before he was set ablaze. 

Peterside decried the on-going mass executions in Rivers State, describing it as frightening and unprecedented. According to him, the pathetic security situation in Rivers State is unfortunately a direct affront on the federal government’s power to protect lives and property within its territory. 

Peterside, who spoke in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, said the state urgently needs help.

Hi words: “The security situation in our dear state is distressing and we cannot continue to live under such a desperate situation. I am therefore using this opportunity to again draw the attention of the world to daily killings taking place in Rivers State. 

“Last Friday, Mr. Franklin, APC Ward 4 Chairman in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area was killed and beheaded with his wife in Omoku. Franklin who recently moderated APC ward meeting in the LGA hails from the same ward as the State Chairman of the PDP, Felix Obuah.

“Four APC persons were killed in Obibi, Etche LGA in the last 48 hours. Gabriel Cookey was clubbed to death in Opobo, Opobo/Nkoro LGA today by suspected cultist.

“Only his morning, in Buguma, Ofinjite Amachree, an APC member was set ablaze by thugs who are members of PDP.

“In fact, in the last two weeks, over 30 APC members have been killed in different parts of Rivers State. We are tired of this bloodbath; this is why we are calling on the Federal Government and Nigerians generally to come to our aid.

“As citizens of Rivers State, we know that this heart-rending situation is a fallout of loss of moral right by the Nyesom Wike-led government to fight criminality having benefitted from their activities in the recent past. But this killing must stop and the time is now.

“Unfortunately members of PDP are heeding the call by Nyesom Wike to burn alive members of the opposition and other electoral personnel who stands on their way to victory in the forthcoming rerun elections in Rivers State.”
