LAGOS, (CAJ News) – THE All Progressives Congress (APC) said the rival People’s Democratic Party of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, must be held accountable for the death of lawyer and rights activist, Ken at his residence in Port Harcourt.
APC said the deceased was one of the leading counsels to APC chieftain, Ojukaye Flag-Amachree, who is presently incarcerated on alleged trumped-up charges said to be inspired and driven by the Rivers State Government led by Wike.
“Officials of the state government have variously vowed to teach the APC and its leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi a lesson by jailing one of its most active leaders, Hon. Flag-Amachree,” APC stated.
“However, Ken Atswete, as counsel to Flag-Amachree, had thrown in everything into thedefence of his client to the chagrin of officials of the state governmentwho are the traducers of Ojukaye Flag-Amachree.”
APC reported last week, Atswete threatened to expose how the Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Rivers State, Samuel Nwanosike, allegedly obtained a forged court order restraining Independent National Electoral Commission from releasing Tai rerun election results.
The parties are embroiled in a deadlock over the elections result with the PDP against the release of the outcome.
“Late Ken promised to present proof that such a court order did not exist and that the judge that purportedly gave that order was not a vacation judge as she had been on vacation in the US.
“Unfortunately, they ensured he never saw this week and therefore cannot now expose those characters. They may have stopped Ken in his track but they cannot stop God from exposing them”
APC nonetheless called on law enforcement agents to investigate.”
While comment could not be obtained from PDP, it has previously blamed APC for the recurrent violence in Rivers.
