Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged law enforcement agencies to prosecute all connected with a viral video of professed pro-Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, group who threatened to destroy Rivers state over alleged plot by rival All Progressives Congress (APC) factions to dismiss the former Governor from the party,
The charge declared Tuesday in Port Harcourt by Amb Desmond Akawor, Rivers PDP Chairman, came as a parallel pro-Amaechi APC group in Ikwerre Local Government Area (LGA), denounced the drums of war being beaten on behalf of Amaechi over renewed Rivers APC crisis fueled by the national leadership crisis rocking the party following court suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman.
In the trending viral video, an unnamed leader among a group of professed APC supporters of Amaechi had vowed to destroy Rivers state if President Mohammadu Buhari does not impress on relevant stakeholders including security chiefs, the Nigerian judiciary and the National Assembly to prevent alleged conspiracy by rival APC factions in Rivers to expel the Transport Minister from the party.
A spokesman for the group threatened, “If they do anything to Amaechi, we are going to burn down Rivers. We are going to shut down every federal agency, every multinational company. We are going to destroy everything and put Rivers state in crisis.
“We are going to tell them that Amaechi is not a man they can toil with. We will make sure we die with any person who wants to die. Any person who wants to live we are going to live with him. We will not be alive to see them alive to do what they want to do to Amaechi.
“Either we all die together or forget about Rivers or we harmonise in peace. We Weill destroy everything in Rivers, face the consequences and nothing will happen.
