Activist urged Tinubu to sack Wike, gives reason
Umeagbalasi who was honoured by the Correspondents’ Chapel of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Enugu State Council, has said he is dedicating the award to the victims of the Obigbo Massacre.
The award, according to the chapel, was in ‘recognition for contribution in engendering rule of law and human rights in South-East Nigeria”.
In a statement he issued on Sunday, Umeagbalasi asked that Wike, who initiated and supervised heinous crimes along 12 other key perpetrators in Obigbo must be sacked and banned for life from holding public offices and permanently denied entry visas into western world, Daily Independent reported.
While unveiling a new international report titled: “Inside Nyesom Wike’s Bloody Era In Obigbo (Rivers State): Oct 21-Nov 10, 2020”, Umeagbalasi said that the invasion and deadly use of force was brought about by former Wike’s state-wide broadcast of October 21, 2020, inviting soldiers of the Nigerian Army to “flush out IPOB terrorists in the area who killed six soldiers and four policemen and burned police stations”.
Atiku Abubakar can get Wike fired
In a similar development, PDP chieftain and aide to Atiku Abubakar, Daniel Bwala boasted that his principal, Atiku, could call President Tinubu to sack the minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike.
Bwala said President Tinubu values and respects Atiku.
Additionally, Bwala claimed that the PDP would soon expel Wike from the PDP due to his alleged constant violation of the statutory provision of the party.
Tinubu under pressure as calls for Wike’s sack as FCT minister gain momentum
AmbaJay reported also that a former spokesperson of the APC, Comrade Timi Frank, urged President Tinubu to promptly dismiss the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Nyesom Wike.
Frank, in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday, October 31, accused Wike of orchestrating a scheme to impeach Rivers State Governor Siminilaye Fubara.
The ex-APC chieftain strongly criticised the police’s actions, including the use of tear gas and water on Governor Fubara, who holds the responsibility of the state’s chief security officer.
