The Rivers State Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Felix Obuah has called on the Inspector General of Police, Abubarkar Adamu to institute a panel to probe the alleged brazen involvement of the Rivers State Commander of F-SARS, Mr. Akin Fakorode and other police operatives in the alleged organized invasion of polling units, collation centers, abduction of electoral officers and the shooting and killing of innocent persons during the general elections in parts of the state. 

Areas affected were Khana, Gokana, Ikwerre, Eleme, Tai, Oyigbo and Ogu/Bolo Local Government Areas of the State.

Obuah, in a press briefing in Port Harcourt on Saturday, said one of the victims of the alleged police assault on March 9th governorship election, Dr. Ferry Gberegbe, who is a senior lecturer at the Ken Saro Wiwa Polytechnic, has died of gunshot wounds.

He said that other victims of the alleged police attack, such as Mr. Marvin Lezor Kpea-ue, Raymond Ledogo and several persons are presently battling with life-threatening injuries inflicted on them by the men of F-SARS.

He commended the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant-General Yusuf Tukur Buratai for inaugurating the Major-General TA Gagariga’s led Committee to probe the allegations of misconduct, including the assassination attempt on Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike by soldiers during the 2019 general elections.

“In the same vein, we wish to call on the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr. Abubakar Mohammed Adamu to institute a similar panel to probe the brazen involvement of the Rivers State Commander of F-SARS, Mr. Akin Fakorode and his gang of police operatives in the organized invasion of polling units, collation centers, abduction of electoral officers and the shooting and killing of innocent persons during the general elections at Khana, Gokana, Ikwerre, Eleme, Tai, Oyigbo and Ogu/Bolo Local Governments of the State,” he stressed.
