“His own media aide as INEC commissioner and you are saying INEC should be independent, how will that INEC be independent when the President appoints his own aide as commissioner? And nobody is talking, protesting about it.

“So as you are protesting police reforms, we must also tell Mr. President you cannot make you personal aide and INEC commissioner. I will continue to fight for reform of the police, and when something happens to Rivers, other states should join it.”

During the protest, Governor Wike said he prayed for killings, kidnapping and armed robbery to spread across Nigeria because the Federal Government did not take him seriously when he raised an alarm over the brutalities suffered by his people in the hand of the dissolved Special Anti-Armed Robbery Squad (SARS).
