"I Sent the Military after my People , Not to Kill the Igbos," Nyesom Wike

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has denied reports and facts drawn from pictures and videos about the killing of Obigbo youths in the state.

While claiming that members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) had destroyed properties in the area and killed people, Wike in a state broadcast on Monday, denied that the imposition of a curfew in Oyigbo was to restore order to the area.

“So, it’s not true that I order the military to kill Igbos in Oyigbo. When did I become a friend to the Military?” the former Minister of Education wondered. “So what about the Igbos living elsewhere in the state are they also being killed?”

He maintained that this is not the first time the pro-Biafra group is using the area as a launching pad.

He also claimed, “IPOB added a new dimension this time. They killed 6 Army Officers and burnt one. They killed four Police Officers,” he explained. “They destroyed all the Police Stations and Court Buildings. What offense did we commit as a state?”


The governor added that he has “no relationship with the Army or the Police, I do not command them. They change Commissioner of Police every time. How will I begin to direct the Army that I do not give instruction?”

Wike who expressed thus,

“I will not fold my arms and watch criminals destroy my state if those few criminals are Igbos then they should know that I will not allow them,” he warned. “They made attempt to rename a local government in my state. That alone is a signal. I will not agree to that. I know who is doing all these; who has told them to rise, protest against Wike.”
