The Nigerian Police have denied Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike’s allegation that the force mandated the state police command to assassinate him.

According to a statement made public by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Jimoh Moshood,  Wike made this assertion in an interview with a newspaper which was used as its headline with the caption: ‘IG has given Rivers CP a mandate to kill me – Wike’.

”The Nigeria Police Force wishes to categorically state that there is no iota of truth in all the allegations and false assertions in the interview granted by the Governor,” the statement noted.

Allegation is malicious

The force said the allegation, coming from Wike, is malicious and capable of misleading and causing disaffection between the force and the good people of Rivers State who the governor swore to lead and serve democratically without prejudice.

It maintained that the Inspector-General of Police has never given an order or assignment to the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State or any Police officer anywhere in the country the Governor nor directed the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State to cage the governor as alleged.
