Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said that a man carrying an AK-47 rifle blocked his convoy at Waterlines Junction, Port Harcourt, the state capital, and trailed him until his security details stopped him.
He made the revelation on Friday when Eboka Friday, the new Police Commissioner in the state, paid him a visit o Friday.
“Yesterday (Thursday), I was going out for inspection. We saw one guy carrying Ak47, not on Police uniform. He was on mufti, blocking us from Waterlines Junction when we went to inspect the Rivers State Assembly’s quarters on-going project.
“We moved on to inspect the Speaker’s residence project, and the man was still following us. So, the security wondered what’s going on and stopped him,” PMNews quoted him to have said.
Wike urged the new Police Commissioner (CP) Eboka Friday, to shun politics and stay within his professional mandate to fight crime without fear or favour.
