Military, police may use fighter jets against us in 2019 election – Wike

Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has said that the “invasion” of the state by security agents during the December 10 legislative rerun, is only a sign of what to expect during the 2019 general election.

Wike was speaking to journalists on Thursday night and claims fighter jets may be used during the next general elections.

He also wondered why the military and police was heavily involved in an ordinary legislative rerun.

“If you can have an invasion by the military, police, DSS and INEC for an ordinary legislative rerun election, then if you have presidential and governorship election, it will be a Tsunami,” Wike said.

“There will be fighter jets; they will locate people’s houses and bomb them because that is the only thing remaining. That is why I said anybody who is thinking about 2019 is wasting his time.

“28,000 policemen, three gunboats and others; even DPOs were transferred a day to the election. Some of the security agents had charms in their vehicles for the legislative rerun. They must bomb everybody who does not agree with them.”

Wike also accused the All Progressives Congress (APC), as those behind the audio clip  in which he allegedly threatened officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He said: “When you look at certain things, you just laugh. At no time did I speak to any electoral officer, let alone issue threats to any electoral officer. There is nowhere I spoke to an electoral officer, threatening him or her as the case maybe.

“It is totally not correct. The major issue is: did the police participate in rigging election? Did the army participate in rigging the election? Did INEC compromise?

“Let them face the reality and stop chasing shadows. What is audio clip? What can’t this government do? I don’t have an orderly; I don’t have a chief security officer, I don’t have camp commandant. All were taken away before the election.”
