Rivers State governor, Chief Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike has declared that the state government will submit the white paper on the report by the judicial commission of inquiry that investigated the killings and other acts of violence during the December 10, 2016 rerun/supplementary elections to the police for necessary action.
The governor emphasised that he is aware that the current inspector-general of police, Ibrahim Idris would not act on the report, but said that the police as an institution would eventually perform their constitutional role as Idris would not be inspector general forever.
Wike spoke yesterday at the government house, Port Harcourt after the submission of the report by the Judicial Commission of Inquiry that Investigated the killings and other violent acts that occurred during the December 10, 2016 rerun/supplementary elections.
The governor stated that the report of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry would be considered by the state executive council and a white paper duly prepared.
He commended the Judicial Commission of Inquiry for a painstaking and thorough report which included videos, testimonies and relevant accounts of everything that transpired during the elections.
