Former lawmaker Mr. Dino Melaye and his group, the Anti-Corruption Network, have dared the Nigerian Government over the fate of embattled Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi, whom they vowed to defend against alleged persecution by the federal authorities.

“Usurpers will not kill our democracy. The battle to safeguard our democracy is a battle of no retreat, no surrender. President Jonathan is behaving as if he has no legacy intentions. Try us and see, I dare the Presidency. Enough is a Enough,” the group said today in a statement issued in Abuja, capital of Nigeria.

Entitled “Touch Amaechi, touch Nigeria”, the statement was signed by Melaye, a former member of the House of Representatives and Executive Secretary of the Anti-Corruption Network.

“We will do everything within the confines of the law to protect our fragile democracy which the President and his wife do not know how we got it,” the statement said, berating President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife Patience over the raging political crisis in Rivers State.

It also gave Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, a week ultimatum to remove the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Joseph Mbu, or the group would mobilise the masses and occupy the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

According to the statement: “What is going on in Rivers State is African magic. We leave Amaechi’s life in the hands of Mr. President and his wife. We give the IGP one week to remove the Commissioner of Police in Rivers state; failure to do so, we shall mobilise Nigerians like never before to occupy the Force HQ in Abuja. The President should get ready for the Egyptian treatment.

“Touch Amechi and touch Nigeria. The abuse of law and order by both the anti-Amaechi legislators and the Nigerian Police is not only disgraceful but will not be tolerated by the mass of the people in this country. The Presidency cannot absolve herself from this satanic manifestation. Who ordered the military withdrawal from Rivers state Government House?”
