Our attention has been drawn to the regrettable indictment of federal security agencies by the Minister of Transportation, Mr Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi who claimed that the  Omoku violence which led to the death of innocent Rivers indigenes  was because Rivers  State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike was arming militants. 

For the avoidance of doubt, Amaechi’s statement  is false and an infantile attempt  to gain political mileage from the  senseless killings of innocent Rivers indigenes. 

Over the last few days, there have been nationwide upsurge of violence, leading  to the unfortunate  deaths of Nigerians. Is the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi  Chibuike Amaechi claiming that in all these instances, the governors of the respective states  armed the killers?

In Southern  Kaduna, several persons including a traditional ruler and his pregnant wife were killed. In Kwara State, a new year violence claimed several lives.  In Yobe State, Boko Haram insurgents killed 5 soldiers while several community youths lost  their lives. 

Also in Lagos State, Badoo cultists  killed a family of five, while over the last few days, Fulani herdsmen have killed scores of innocent Nigerians  in Benue State.

We need not mention  the scores killed over the last two weeks  in Plateau, Adamawa and  Zamfara States by Fulani herdsmen. 

It is regrettable that the chief financier of APC National campaign would politicize  a security challenge, effectively domiciled at the doorsteps of Federal Security agencies. 

The fact that he made such statement at preccints of the Presidential Villa is a sad commentary.

For the records, Rivers  State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has funded and equipped  security agencies in the state more than any other state governor has done. Rather than being commended  for the  sacrifice, ingrates like Amaechi see nothing in the genuine efforts  of a patriotic leader, which Nyesom Ezenwo Wike represents.
