PDP Charges IGP, DSS To Act On Alleged Threat To Rivers State



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, as well as the director-general of the Department of State Services (DSS), Yusuf Magaji Bichi, to without further delay, take decisive action against threatsby feuding factions in the unsettled All Progressives Congress (APC) to unleash terror in Rivers State.

The party expressed concerns that despite the threats of bloody showdown by an APC gang alleged to be loyal to the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, which had gone viral, the security agencies are yet to take any action to stop the gangs and their sponsors from using the state as a battleground for their violent tussle.

The PDP said it is more disturbing that the Police and DSS had failed to act, in spite of entreaties from the state government asking them to intervene following the grave danger that the bloody threats portend to the citizens, residents and businesses in the state.

A statement by the national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said, “It is also instructive to note that the failure of the security  agencies to pull in members of the gangs and their sponsors is emboldening them.
