THE governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Magnus Abe, has said that the political violence in the state is sponsored by state actors.
Abe stated this during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics today.
He said that some local government chairmen in the state mobilized youth to attack his supporters recently.
He said, “I am not just mentioning names. These are issues that are in public circulation. When we went to Okrika, two vehicles were used to block the road to stop us from having access to the local government.
“I am telling you what actually happened. People went and pulled down our banners. If I call their their names there are people who are known to everybody here in the state. These are not unknown gunmen. What is happening in Rivers State is officially sponsored terrorism that is happening with connivance of security agencies.”
