“Wike will bring upon himself apocalypse of immense proportions if he attempts to demolish any hotel, leisure places or any property of its member in Rivers State under any guise whatsoever."

He said:

“Lately, his predicament has not been helped by the inconclusive outcome of his offer to work for the Presidential Candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, in exchange for a safe landing and protection after the 2023 general election having been convinced that Tinubu will defeat Atiku Abubakar of his party, the PDP.
“The anarchy Wike will bring upon himself should he attempt it against any APC member will assume the dimension of an apocalypse of immense proportions. We hope the governor takes this warning seriously."

Finebone also warned that time is already winding up on Wike in terms of his political career and he has become frantic in seeking help.
