PDP Calls For Investigation Into Saturday’s Attack On PH Church

By Chinenye Festus:-

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) through a statement released by its National Publicity Secretary Kola Ologbodiyan on Sunday called for a thorough investigation into Saturday’s explosion that happened at the Christian Universal Church, Port Harcourt.

The party condemned in its totality the atrocious attack on the church founded by Rev. Nlemanya Wike, the father of Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers.

The statement reads in part:
“The PDP is disturbed by the intentions of the attackers in detonating an explosive in a religious place, particularly given the large number of persons that usually gather at such places.
“We hold, as a party, that the time had come, more than ever in our contemporary history, for the amendment of our extant laws to allow state governors to be in charge of security in their respective states,” Ologbondiyan stated.
“We demand a thorough investigation into the attack as well as prosecution of all those involved.
“Such a courageous act by the people also points to the need to allow greater participation of communities and state governments in the handling of security issues in their environment.

“PDP especially commends Wike for his efforts towards ensuring the security of his state, in spite of the daunting challenges,” he added.

Ologbondiyan commended the people of the state for their alertness, which led to the arrest of some of the suspected masterminds.

He, therefore, urged Wike, members of the affected church, and the people of Rivers not to be deterred by the attack but to remain vigilant at all times as the party in connection with Rivers state government is doing all they can to unravel the people behind this callous act.
