Rivers PDP Condemn Attack on Odili, Says Sylva, Oshiomhole should be held Responsible.- By Divine Sam.

Gov Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and other PDP faithful has unanimously condemned the recent attack by the APC pointing the erstwhile governor Peter Odili to have been behind the sudden nullification of Bayelsa state gubernatorial Elections by the supreme Court.
The Rivers State Government frowned against the accusation on the former Governor of the state, Dr. Peter Odili and his family following the Supreme Court judgment that nullified the election of Mr. David Lyon as the winner of the November 16 governorship election in Bayelsa State.
Odili’s wife, Justice Mary Odili, headed a five-man panel of the Supreme Court that nullified the victory of Lyon and the All Progressives Congress (APC) on February 13.
The state government accused the Minister of State of Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva and the National Chairman of the APC, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, of sponsoring the attacks on Odili and members of his family in Abuja.
But in a swift reaction, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr. Yekini Nabena, accused Rivers State Governor, Mr. Nyesom Wike and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of being behind the protest at the Abuja residence of Justice Odili
In a statement yesterday by the state Commissioner for Information and Communication, Mr. Paulinus Nsirim, issued after the state Executive Council meeting, the state government expressed concern that the federal government did not show interest in what it described as sponsored threats to the lives of the Odilis.
Nsirim said: “The Rivers State Executive Council condemns the barricading of the residence of Dr. Peter Odili at Maitama, Abuja by sponsored thugs of the All Progressives Congress (APC).”
The nullified APC Gubernatorial Candidate, Mr. Lyon has since call for calm in Bayelsa.
