The Peoples Democratic Party, Rivers State chapter has expressed dissatisfaction over the seeming delay by the police authorities to arrest and investigate the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Hon. Otelemaba Dan Amachree as ordered by a Port Harcourt High Court about three weeks ago. The party said its discomfort over the police inaction on the court order was borne out of the fact that the Rivers State Government had allegedly continued to make frantic efforts aimed at frustrating series of investigations of its officials who were culpable in various crimes and offences perpetrated in course of the current crisis in the state, particularly the July 9, 2013 incident at the hallowed chambers of the Rivers State House of Assembly. The PDP in a statement issued in Port Harcourt by Jerry Needam, media adviser to the State Party Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah, said the expectation was that the Commissioner of Police would act swiftly, considering sensitivity and seriousness of Amachree’s allegation of a grand plot to kill the Governor of the state, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi. The party said it believed that acting urgently and in accordance with the law on the issue would not only douse the tension and fears already created by the assassination plot as alleged by Otelemaba Dan Amachree but would go a long way to reassuring the citizenry of the impartiality and commitment of the police in crime prevention and protection of lives and property in the state. “It is important that the police refuse to yield to pressure of compromise by the Rivers State Government, as acting otherwise will further leave the people with ill feelings and lack of confidence in the activities of our police force”, the party said. “We, therefore, call on the Rivers State Police Commissioner, Mr Mbu Joseph Mbu to prove his affirmation by the Inspector General of Police as a professional and non partisan police officer, by respecting the decisions of the court and acting in accordance with the law. He should urgently arrest and investigate the Speaker, Otelemaba Amachree for raising false alarm, claiming to have uncovered plots by some persons to assassinate an eminent personality, like the Governor of Rivers State, Rt Hon Chibuike Amaechi. “In such a serious matter as this, the people deserve to know the truth and see that the culprit(s) are punished accordingly. The only way we can get to the truth is by investigating this serious allegation so that even the Governor, whose life is said to be in danger can be at peace”, the party stressed.
