“I Am The Only Governor That Came Out To Fight SARS” -Gov. Wike
The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike on Tuesday, said he was the only Governor who came out to fight the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS from the onset of their brutality.
The Governor made this assertion while addressing groups of protesters who defiled his order that no #EndSARS campaign should be held in River state.
According to him, Rivers state jas suffered more in the hands of the defunct SARS more than any other state in the country.
Nyesom Wike in his address noted that he has always called for the reform of the SARS, but has been waiting paitiently to hear the day the federal government will reform the police unit.
In His Words:
“I am the only Governor, the number one governor in Nigeria that came out to fight SARS.”
“I have always called for the reform of the police force ,not only SARS , and I am waiting to hear the day they will reform the police force.”
“When i was shouting about the activities of SARS in Rivers State nobody supported us, they said i was playing politics, but because SARS has extended their brutality to their states now they want me to support them , I won’t… No state is more important than Rivers State.”
“Recall how my own media aide Marshal Obuzor was brutalised and molested by SARS personnel in port Harcourt.”
“No state suffered more in the hands of SARS than Rivers State but when ever we cry out people will say we are playing politics, but today they are calling for # EndSARS because they have started killing their own people.”
“So , what they are trying to tell us is that the lives of those SARS killed in Rivers State are not as important as those SARS is killing in their own states today.”
