WE WILL RESIST ALL FORMS OF INTIMIDATION BY THE APC - Hon. Rowland Sekibo,JP



...



The Executive Chairman of Akuku-Toru Local Government Area, Hon. Rowland Sekibo, JP  has decried the use of thugs and the armed forces by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to attack innocent Akulgans because of their choice to support the PDP. The Chairman said this on Saturday, 25th August, 2018 after a band of APC armed thugs aided by the military attacked PDP members in Abonnema yesterday.

It happened that the APC tried their usual gimmicks again, but again failed at it.

It was reported that Hon. Rowland Sekibo who had been on an official function with other members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the LGA Party Secretariat in Abonnema was attacked by the armed men.

It was confirmed that the men were sent by APC stalwart, Chief Dumo Lulu Briggs.

However, reports said that the armed men were overwhelmed by the multitude of Akuku-Toru people who came out to resist the attack.

Reports said that the hoodlums had come to raid the town knowing that the Chairman had earlier travelled to Kula, a community in the LGA, to observe a youth body election. Unfortunately, the terrorists did not know that the Chairman was already back to Abonnema as at the time of their raid.

In Abonnema the APC thugs attacked people and shot sporadically in the air to terrorize the community. But this lasted only a few minutes as Hon. Rowland Sekibo (King of the Youths, as he is fondly called) soon appeared from nowhere.

Joined by hundreds of other AKULGA people, the Executive Chairman confronted the criminals until the hoodlums were forced out of the Abonnema town. At the arrival of the people, the strangers fled, some leaving behind their shoes and slippers.

The army soon began to withdraw their arms. They began to speak in low tones. Ashamed of their actions, they now struggled fruitlessly to placate the crowd of people that stood in opposition to them.

Hon. Rowland Sekibo who has been conferred Justice of Peace by the Rivers State Government said that it is the responsibility of the government to ensure peace at all times. He said that the good people of Akuku-Toru are a peaceful people, and as Chairman of the LGA, he will continue to foster that peacefulness.

Hon. Sekibo, however, warned that Akuku-Toru people will not fold their hands to wanton intimidation by the All Progressives Congress.

He said: "One thing these people have failed to realize is that in Akuku-Toru, politics is different. In Akuku-Toru, people decide what happens to them. Human beings vote and stand to defend their votes as well. You can ask any body about that."

The Chairman also admonished the military to be neutral in the disposition of their duties.

He said: "The role of the police and military is to protect the people. When the military become bias in doing this, I am afraid what will happen. There is a point you oppress a people to and they are left with no option than to revolt."
