Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said the people of the state will not participate in the Nigerian Police Special Joint Investigation Panel on Rivers rerun election.
Wike also announced that his government has challenged the setting up of the panel in court with the Chairman of the panel, DCP Damian Okoro, as one of the defendants.
The governor said the panel was set up by the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, with a predetermined goal of assisting the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the election tribunal.
Speaking in Government House, Port Harcourt, today when members of the investigation panel visited him, the governor said it was regrettable that the Nigerian police is being used to protect the interest of a particular politician in the state.
He also said the panel is biased with an agenda targeted at his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its members, while shielding policemen allegedly used by the APC to commit electoral fraud.
