Rivers APC goes tough, issues high-level threat to Governor Wike

The ruling All Progressives Congress had warned that the party will not tolerate the demolition of property belonging to its members by the Rivers state government.

The party's warning followed a claim by Governor Nyesom Wike that some politicians plan to use thugs and cultists to disrupt activities in the state.

According to the APC, Wike's threat to demolish hotels or recreational centres that harbour this criminal element is targeted at its members.
