A pro-Buhari group, the Buhari Media Support Group (BMSG), has condemned the recourse to violence by some of the contenders in the last Saturday’s rerun elections in Rivers State.
The group therefore urged the federal government to take swift action to arrest the unfortunate situation in order to forestall total breakdown of law and order in the state.
In a statement signed by the Chairman of the group, Muhammed Labbo, and his Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, the BMSG also asked the security agencies to rise up to the task and fish out those behind the recent killings and prosecute them to serve as deterrent to those bent on throwing the state into a state of anarchy.
“We appeal to all political parties and politicians in the state to conduct themselves and their activities within the ambit of the law.
“The BMSG also condemns the recent provocative statements allegedly made by the state Governor, Nyesom Wike, and advised him to desist from making further reckless and irresponsible statements capable of emboldening his party members and supporters to unleash violence on opposition supporters and innocent citizens of the state.”
