"Your Government worse than Abacha's" - From Gov. Amaechi to President GEJ


This post was jacked from olufamous.com

Guns boomed! Smoke filled the air!! People were running and screaming!!! Vehicles were vandalised!!!!...
That was the scene on Sunday as PDP-led militants disrupted a Save Rivers Movement (SRM) rally in Bori, the traditional headquarters of Ogoni and the seat of Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State.
Secretary to the State Government (SSG) George Feyii, an Ogoni; Chief of Staff, Government House, Chief Tony Okocha and many allies of Governor Rotimi Amaechi were caught up in the violence. Their vehicles were riddled with bullets while the police looked away.
The governor, alarmed at the scale of the violence, described President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration as worse than that of the late dictator, General Sani Abacha. He said Jonathan is now desperate...

Two persons were shot dead by the rampaging militants, who started shooting from 4:00am at the venue of the SRM rally — the All Saints’ Anglican Church, Bori, not far from the State Polytechnic, Bori-Ogoni.

The militants’ attack came exactly one week after the SRM’s rally billed for the Rivers State College of Arts and Science, Port Harcourt was disrupted by the police, with a senator from Rivers, Magnus Abe, shot in the chest. He is still recuperating in a London hospital.

Gov. Amaechi, who is also the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), later in an interview at the Government House, after inspecting the shot and vandalised vehicles at 4:45pm, also accused the Federal Government of desperation over the 2015 elections.

Amaechi said Jonathan wants to win the 2015 at all costs, even if people die.

The police, however, protected a group in support of President Jonathan, Grassroots Development Initiative (GDI) who held a rally at Degema Local Government Area in the same Rivers State.

Amaechi however said the disrupted Bori rally will hold this coming Saturday and he promised to attend.
