Governor Amaechi escapes death thug fires


Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State on Thursday(yesterday) escaped death as suspected political thugs opened fire on his convoy in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state. However, two members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, were not so lucky as they were seriously injured in the incident. The incident occurred at about 6pm. Amaechi was said to be on a door-to-door campaign in the area when the incident occurred. 

Confirming the incident, the Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Amaechi, Mr. David Iyofor, said, “This evening (Thursday), gunshots were fired at the convoy of Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi at Rumuolumeni, Obio/Akpor LGA by PDP thugs. “Obio/Akpor is the home of the PDP governorship candidate in the state, Nyesom Wike. The thugs attacked the governor’s convoy and his entourage with bottles, stones and other dangerous objects. Then gunshots were fired at the convoy. “When the governor was leaving the community, bonfire was set up on the road to prevent him from leaving. More gunshots were fired at his convoy. Amaechi was on door-to-door ward campaign in the state.”

Also, the Greater Together Campaign Organisation, a team in charge of the APC candidate, Dakuku Peterside’s governorship campaign, confirmed the attack. According to the group, the attack is part of the plot to assassinate chieftains and members of the APC. The Director of the campaign organisation, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, in a statement issued in Port harcourt, said, “In keeping with their plans to attack and assassinate chieftains and members of the APC, thugs of the PDP ambushed the convoy of Governor Amaechi, who was on a door-to-door campaign in Rumuolumeni, Obio/Akpor, Rivers State. “The thugs were repelled by the governor’s security personnel. However, the PDP in Rivers State has concluded plans to launch house-to-house attack on APC chieftains in the state with the aid of security personnel.”
