Women Arise for Justice yesterday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to question the Governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike, over the high rate of death recorded at the just-concluded re-run election that took place in the state.
The group also wants the federal government to probe the abduction and the eventual killing of Colonel, Samaila Inusa in Kaduna on Tuesday.
The women who stormed the Presidential Villa in Abuja during a peaceful protest said all the deaths, abductions, intimidation and destruction of property were the product of the do-or-die politics that featured during the last Rivers State re-run election.
The National President of the group, Jummai Samuel Pukat, who led the protest said the governor should be held responsible for all the atrocities since his body language and utterance directly constitute instruction to his political killers to deal with those not on the same page with him.
According to her, “It was Governor Wike who threatened that there are areas that people from the federal level cannot access in the state. It was him who said anyone coming from outsider Rivers for the re-run must first write their will.
