Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said its earlier alarm on the looting spree and other illegal activities of the out-going Governor Rotimi Amaechi, his family members, and aides in the Government House and other government institutions has again been justified following the interception by Police, Sunday, of a truckload of looted property from the Government House.
This is even as an aide to the state Governor, Chubuike Amaechi has denied reports of looting at the Government House in Port Harcourt.
The PDP, in a statement signed by Jerry Needam, Special Adviser on Media to State PDP Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah, while commending men and officers of the Rivers State Command of the Nigerian Police, who intercepted the truck carrying looted items from the Government House, Port Harcourt , however, said it is ‘unhappy over this illegal and criminal development which seems unabated and unchecked thereby allowing the perpetrators to have a field day looting state-owned facilities and huge funds.’
“The Party considers its position vindicated with the latest seizure of a Toyota Camry Car with Registration Number: KRK 340 AA, belonging to one Mr. Chant, which was used in escorting a Mercedes Benz Truck with Registration Number: LA 086 MA, carrying several items from the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt, on Sunday, May 10, 2015, at about 7pm.
“Items looted and moved out under the instruction of the out-going Governor (Amaechi) in the truck include, among others, three big Safe containing large sums of money, domestic utensils, sound-proof generators, computers, fridges, foreign furniture, electrical and electronic gadgets and so on.
“The PDP describes this looting galore by Gov Amaechi and family members as capable of wrecking the state and the people, calling on the security agencies and the people to be proactive and rise against this unholy act before it gets out of hand.
“The PDP calls on Gov Amaechi, his Wife (Judith) and all officials of the out-going APC government to search their conscience, and desist from running the State aground before leaving office, saying its eyes are open on checkmating their activities until the final whistle is blown on May 29, 2015, when a new government will certainly be formed in the State,” the party said.
