The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has asked a High Court sitting in Port Harcourt to commit former Governor Chibuike Amaechi, the Chief of Defence Staff and Chief of Army Staff to prison for deploying soldiers during the March 19 re-run election in defiance of a court order.

Others included in the committal proceedings are the Commander of the 2 Army Brigade, Port Harcourt, Brigadier General Stephenson Olabanji; the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and Rivers State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr Aniedi Ikoiwak.

The ruling party in the state and its chairman, Mr. Felix Obuah, sought for the relief in a Motion on Notice filed by their solicitor, Kingsley Chuku, before the state High Court Registry and dated March 22, 2016.

The Motion on Notice was brought pursuant to Order XIV of the Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedure), Rules 2009′ under the jurisdiction of the state High Court.
Rivers PDP and its chairman had earlier, in Suit No PHC/601/2016 filed at the state High Court by their counsel, Kingsley Chuku, secured a court injunction restraining Amaechi, the army and the Federal Government from deploying soldiers during the re-run elections.

    The Illuminati Pyramid Organization (I.P.O) has implemented a one year opening for every individuals who seek to join the organization to become wealthy and live a life full of pleasures. If you are interested email us on WORLDILLUMINATIOFFICIAL@GMAIL.COM or contact us on +2349057280687 for more information and complete description. Application starts from January 2016.

    • My dear Clifford, in the name of Jesus Christ, I passionately urge you to desist from going into and doing what will not give you eternal joy nor bring you happiness nor even bring you lasting wealth or life full of pleasures as you are propagating neither in this life nor in the life to come. The word of God (The Bible) that created the heavens and the earth and yet nobody nor power created Him, says in the book of John 1:23 “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, make straight the way of the Lord as said the Prophet Esaias”. In the same book of John 14:6, Jesus saith unto him,”I am the way, the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the father, but y me”. Besides, what will it profit you if you if you gain the world but loose your own soul – see in the Bile, the book of Mathew 16:26.

      Clifford Adeyemi, Jesus is knocking at your door, open and let Him in. Visit a Bible believing Church today and stay there serving God in Spirit and in Truth, there is no amount of wealth or fame or a life full of pleasure you are looking for elsewhere that Jesus wont endow you with (see Mathew 14:17-21; Mark 6:38-42, Mark 8:19 and John 6:9-13)and even bless your children and children’s children with fame, peace of mind and a disease free life.

    AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MUST IMMEDIATELY DECLARE A STATE OF EMERGENCY IN THE STATE. THE RECKLESS IMPUNITY IN THE STATE MUST BE SUBDUED AND AND HAND OVER THE DAY TO DAY RUNNING OF THE GOVERNMENT OF RIVERS STATE TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENSENTATIVES. ALL THESE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MUST DO WITHOUT ANY FUTHER DALAY, IF WE DO NOT WANT TO SEE THE END OF OUR MUCH FOUGHT FOR DEMOCRATIC PROCESS. I WARN ALLOWING THIS RECKLESS IMPUNITY TO GO UNCHALLENGED WILL SPELL DOOM AND DISASTER

    • banadi

      Come and enforce the so called state of emergency lets see. ! See frustration!

      • Paul Graham

        If that happens heaven will not fall. Tough guy Tompolo has since taken to the bush!

        • banadi

          Go ahead and see, Tompolo is in his house even MB knows that! What bush did u meet with him?

    • Okafor

      Is that all you have to say? The state govt got an injunction from the court stopping the army from deploying troops during the election. As usual they didn’t obey court order.
      The result is that the army killed people during the election.

  • Agbobu is brainless.

    • American

      It is you Williams dg that attacks individuals rather the debate that is brainless. Shame on you Williams !

  • Paul Graham

    Wike is tempting faith by trying to create chaos that will sweep his administration aside. Is Rotimi Amechi in a position to deploy the military? Why is he busy chasing shadows instead of facing governance?

  • Paul Graham

    Wike should also remember that ex President Jonathan from Niger Delta declared State of emergency in three Northern States due to safety issues and if violence continues in Rivers, PMB will be left with no choice other than declare same in Rivers.
