Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has said he may soon be arrested by security agents. Wike expressed his fears when he spoke at the special court session marking the opening of the 2016/2017 Legal Year of the state Judiciary in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital yesterday November 11th.
Wike says the recent arrest of some judges by the DSS shows that anybody in the country can now be arrested.
“I was afraid to come out for this programme when I heard that all the security heads in this state came for the programme. So, I told my orderly to pack some of my things into a bag that I may not return because they may arrest me from there.
My orderly asked, but you have immunity. I told him that there couldn’t be immunity in Nigeria when people are arrested anyhow. We don’t respect the rule of law. Anybody can be arrested at anytime. The fight against corruption in the country undermines development. It serves no useful purpose” he said
