APC killed our leaders, Rivers PDP alleges

08:17 Mar 14 2015 Abonnema, Degema, Rivers, Nigeria

The Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State said on Saturday 14th March 2015, that two of its leaders in Akuku-Toru were shot dead by supporters of the All Progressives Congress.

The victims were identified as Mr. Ibima Olunta, the PDP Chairman Ward 2 Abonnema and Mr. Goodfellow Bobmanuel, a PDP councillorship aspirant for ward 2 in Abonnema. The PDP alleged that they were killed at the front of their houses.

The State Chairman of the PDP, Chief Felix Obuah, who condemned the murder of members of his party, called for the arrest and prosecution of the Caretaker Committee Chairman of Akuku-Toru Local Government Area, Fenibo Jack.

He said the deceased were shot dead as they sat in front of their house in Abonnema, Ward 2, Akuku-Toru Local Government Area.

Obuah, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Media, Mr. Jerry Needam, criticised the reign of terror against the PDP members by the APC government of Governor Rotimi Amaechi in Rivers State.

Reacting, Jack dismissed Obuah’s claim, adding that his strong belief in God would never make him harm any person.

Explaining that it was wrong for the PDP chairman to accuse him of killing the PDP members, Jack pointed out that the police had linked the ugly incident to cult-related issue.

Buttressing Jack’s argument, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ahmad Mohammad, confirmed the killing of two persons on Saturday in Abonnema and added that they (police) were alerted to a gun duel involving cultists.
