#NigeriaDecides: Nigerian Army accuses Governor Wike of Trying to Compromise Elections in Rivers | BellaNaijaThe 6 Division of the Nigerian Army, headquartered in Rivers State, has accused the state governor, Nyesom Wike, of trying to compromise the army in the general elections over the weekend.

The army at a press briefing, played an audio recording claiming it was the voice of Governor Wike.

Punch reports that the army attempted to parade a group of persons arrested for alleged involvement in election malpractice, and that was when the drama began.

The individuals, including Rivers State Commissioner for Urban Development, Reason Onyia, a soldier identified as Major Ubah, a police officer identified as Owen who is said to be the camp commandant of the Government House in Port Harcourt, and some INEC ad-hoc staff, claimed the army lied against them.

The alleged suspects, led by Onyia, made a scene while the Deputy Director of the Army Public Relations, Col. Aminu Iliyasu, spoke on the alleged offenses.

Wike and some other INEC ad-hoc staff had accused the army of intimidation and disruption of the election.

    Seriously speaking this is one election I wish I had not come out to vote, It was my first time of voting but with all due respect, it would have been better if I did not vote! because my vote didn’t count, the violence was widespred, election material carted, ballot box snatched, inec offices burnt, it was a free for all condition. Yes the election is won and the winner takes it all. A new game begins when the chickens come home to roost ” the sharoo from the north will hold in the west but not to the bata drums” heed my words when the chickens come home to roost… the bullion van would be lost to bourdillon.
