The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has set up a panel to investigate and analyse an audio clip where Rivers governor, Nyesom Wike allegedly threatened to kill INEC officials during the last legislative rerun elections in the state.

In a statement issued  the Force spokesman, DCP Don Awunah, said the panel would also investigate 70 incidents mentioned by the INEC chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, during the elections.

He enjoined the Rivers government and INEC to avail the panel with facts at their disposal to achieve a comprehensive and conclusive investigation.

“The election observers, civil society groups, Human Rights watchers and other stakeholders are equally called upon to assist the team with valuable information they may have,” the statement said.

The panel headed by a Deputy Commissioner of Police, has 30 days to submit its report which will be made public.

    Wicked people, but they have not set up any panel yet to investigate the people that were caught red handed with confession on video where they were printing results sheets for APC,so as to verify who sent them and have those people with the perpetrators arrested and prosecuted. Instead the matter was transferred from Rivers State to Abuja on the order from above for obvious reasons. What annoys me the most is that a lot of people actually know the level of corruption with this government including the police, DSS etc but they are keeping quite because they are cowards until another government takes over power, then they will start crawling out to testify with evidences when it would not have any significant effect in the country . It so sad how people are successfully intimated by this present administration and no reputable person in the society is talking about it. Only God knows how 2019 general election will be in this country. This is a typical example of all animals are equal except some in reality . what a news, police is working!

    APC should leave Rivers state alone. Politics is not by force. If they want you, they want you.
