The plight of the many led by Gov. Wike in the protest was to  inform the authorities that they were tired of the killings of innocent people in the state by the police and other security operatives.

Gov. Wike speaking noted that the people and Government of the state were particularly dissatisfied with the recklessness of two Senior Policemen, the Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations, Steven Hasso and the Commander of Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Mr Akin Fakorede who led the sponsored onslaught against the people of Rivers State and compromised the security architecture of the state.

In his words:

“We demand that the Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations, Steven Hasso and the Commander of Special Anti-Robbery Squad ( SARS) Akin Fakorede must leave the state.

“Since you don’t want to protect the state and you want to be politicians, you have gotten the votes you want to get, you have also gotten the seats you want to get, you can now leave the state.”

Moreso, “If they don’t leave the state, then we will do all we can to ensure they leave this state. They must leave this state. They have killed innocent people.

“We have come here peacefully, communicate this to your superiors in Abuja. I cannot write again, since I have done that repeatedly. Please, I don’t want my people to die anymore. I don’t want armed robbers posted as senior police officers to Rivers State”, Gov. Wike said.

He further noted that the Police High Command has refused to act despite the overwhelming evidence against the duo, especially the video footage that showed Akin Fakorede and other security operatives trying to snatch results of the Rivers East Senatorial District.

The governor said the situation where security officials have transformed into politicians in uniform is quite unfortunate.

Responding to the governor, the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Cyril Okoro assured the him that the Rivers State Police Command will pass the message to the Police High Command for necessary action. See more photos below:
