Governor of Rivers, Nyesom Wike has denied claims of ordering the military to kill Igbos in the Oyigbo area of the state.

Speaking in a broadcast on Monday, Wike maintained that the IPOB group had destroyed lives and properties which made him impose a curfew on Oyigbo to restore peace and order.

Wike insisted that he did not order the military to perform such act.
“So, it’s not true that I order the military to kill Igbos in Oyigbo. When did I become a friend to the Military?, So what about the Igbos living elsewhere in the state are they also being killed?. He said.

The narrative that Igbos were being killed by the Military, Wike argued, is to move attention from the nefarious activities of the pro-Biafra group in Oyigbo.

The governor also added that he has “no relationship with the Army or the Police, I do not command them. They change Commissioner of Police every time. How will I begin to direct the Army that I do not give instruction?”
