The allegation was made by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Rivers chapter, Akawor Desmond.
Wike also confirmed the development through a series of tweets signed by the Rivers state PDP on his official twitter handle.
The governor’s tweet reads, “The Hotel where the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike is lodging while on official assignment in Benin, Edo State has been held siege by over 300 Police men.
“Recall that Governor Wike was appointed Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo Governorship election; this is same position Governor Ganduje of Kano State occupies for his party the APC.”
Governor Ganduje and Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State are all in Benin, Edo State carrying out their assignment for the APC without any molestation or intimidation.
And in a breach of the pledge they made security agencies have decided to harass and intimidate Governor Wike who has not done any wrong.
Rivers People Warn that we Shall hold the IGP responsible for anything that happens to our Governor.
Ambassador Akawor Desmond, Chairman
PDP Rivers State
The Hotel where the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike is lodging while on official assignment in Benin, Edo State has been held siege by over 300 Police men.
