Gideon Azubuike Wokocha, a ruler in Okposi Community, Ogba/Ndoni/Egbema Local Government Area, (ONELGA) Rivers State, has spoken on the recent spate of insecurity in the state.
Speaking during an interview session with Naij, he accused Minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi, of giving N110million to kidnappers during his time as Governor.
He said, ”I don’t think the problem is grassroots leadership failure because leaders are flesh and blood too and there is need for them to be alive. I personally wrote to the present Commissioner of Police; telling him what is happening here. They even acknowledged receipt of my letter but they didn’t respond to my call to discourse the way forward. Up till now, I have not heard from any of them. The community leaders are doing their best but they have to stay alive to do that.
”When the cult groups were initiating new members at their respective camps, security agents could not go there. That is why I was surprised when Ameachi said he had gadgets where he detects the places the bad boys are; that the gadgets were destroyed by the current governor. I wanted to ask him where were the gadgets when his serving Commissioner of Power was kidnapped and spent over one week inside the bush and paid a ransom of N110 million?
”Where were the gadgets when APC were doing rally under Ameachi at Rima with all the big people in APC including Senator Wilson Ake, Commissioner of Police, the Chairman of a Local Government, and yet, these bad boys sent a word a cross to the Ameachi led team to give them N20 million if the rally must hold in that community? At the end, they sent somebody with N7 million to the bush. When the cultists found out the money were not complete they seized the messenger until Ameachi completed the money. Where were the gadgets when this happened? Was Ameachi not the governor then?
