The Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, has condemned the plot to reverse the gains made by the state in the promotion of security of lives and property through the reposting of compromised police officers back to the state.
The governor stated that he has officially written to the new Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on the several postings of officers used by politicians to compromise Rivers State security  back to the state to carry out illegal  duties.
Addressing medical practitioners at the Government House, Port Harcourt, on Monday, Wike stated that should the IGP fail to act, he will be compelled to make a state broadcast naming the said officers and the ignominious roles they played in compromising the security  of the state.
He particularly pointed out that a senior police officer indicted for aiding kidnappers and cultists in the state has been posted back in the current attempt to manipulate the security architecture  of the state.
The governor said  the officer in question  was posted out of Rivers State in March, 2016 after the ugly roles he played during the last rerun elections.
According to him, “they are posting back security agents who have access to kidnappers. They are sending back security agents who will compromise the security of Rivers State”.
He regretted  that there is plot to politicise the security  of  lives and property in the state so as to make political gains at the expense of the peace-loving people of  the  state.
The  governor said: “they want to deny our people the peace we enjoy today by compromising our security  network.”
He noted that security  agencies  must learn a lesson from what happened in Turkey  where the people trooped out to defend  their mandate.
Wike stated  that Rivers people  will always make the necessary  sacrifices to ward of compromised  security  agents posted to the state to compromise  the security  network  and steal their mandate.
He said that those sent to the state by the political interest groups to rig the forthcoming elections will receive the treatment reserved for armed robbers.
