Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, while granting audience to a private newspaper company challenged the Nigeria Police to reveal to the world, where DSP Mohammed Alkali was murdered during the Rivers Re-run elections.
He also urged the police to make public, the communications between the late DSP and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) before his death.
“The Police should let the world know where the DSP was killed. In which polling unit was he killed? The former Commissioner of Power who was mentioned by the killers, has he been questioned? Where is the call log between the former commissioner and the killers? Have they checked the discussions between the commissioner and the arrested killers? They know the truth, but they want to cover a lot of things. The Army announced that they recovered the uniforms from the forest, was there a polling unit in the forest?” he queried.
He urged journalists to always defend the truth and speak out because the “survival of democracy, to a large extent, depends on a vibrant media. Certain things happening in the country must be made public by the media.”
